Today on Your Call: What does racial justice mean today?


On today's Your Call, we'll mark the 50 year anniversary of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, when tens of thousands of non-black allies joined 200,000 African-Americans in Washington DC to call for equality and economic justice. How did white allies who marched on that day understand their stake in the civil rights movement? And with so many changes, how has the anti-racist movement evolved? Join the conversation on the next Your Call, with Holly Kernan and you.

Guests:

Rinku Sen, president and executive director of the Applied Research Center, a leading racial justice think tank

Alicia Garza, executive director of People Organized to Win Employment Rights (POWER), a multiracial, intergenerational organization fighting poverty at the root in San Francisco and beyond 

Clare Bayard, co-founder of the Catalyst Project, an anti-racist movement building center
