“The New Civil Rights Movement?”
Carl Williams* will explore this question
Are we beginning a new civil rights movement? 
Today, millions are rising up to denounce racism and what many feel is an institutionalized system of white supremacy.
*Carl Williams, an ACLU attorney, will describe how we have arrived at the current moment in the struggle for racial justice, the Ferguson Rebellion, the #BlackLivesMatter movement, and efforts at police reform. He will also discuss some of the cases that the ACLU is working on to further the struggles for racial justice, and share ways to support Black and Brown people in their pursuit of racial justice
