The Opening Ceremony of the Pittsburgh Racial Justice Summit can be revisited here. Rev. angel, joined by Aqeela Sherrill and Jasmine Syedullah, Ph.D., discuss the impacts of our racialized experiences and the role of radical dharma in social justice.
The Racial Justice Summit, formerly known as the Summit Against Racism, is a flagship event for Pittsburgh organizers. The Summit creates opportunities for attendees to learn, connect, and act on behalf of racial justice.
The Pittsburgh Racial Justice Summit, formerly the Summit Against Racism, is a 1.5-day conference dedicated to providing resources and spaces for community dialogues, sharing of strategies and experiences of organizing for racial justice, healing from racial trauma, and connections to social support services for all attendees. Our theme for 2021 is “Rise, Revolt, Repeat: Building Sustained Movements for Justice.” The Summit, first held in 1996, was convened in response to the murder of Jonny Gammage, a thirty-one-year-old Black man who was murdered in 1995 at the hands of four white police officers in a suburb on the outskirts of Pittsburgh.
