Metro Week Interview – August 18, 2017

Metro Week Interview – August 18, 2017

“Liane, can you point to some ways in which white people are complicit to racism and white supremacy?”

Liane: “There is a certain level of silence that exists and a lack of understanding at the ways in which privilege plays into day-to-day life and experience of community. What you have entre into. What spheres of influence you might have. What access to resources you might have.”

If you missed this powerful interview with Reverend Owen Chandler, and our very own, Liane Hernandez, then take a few minutes and listen to what they have to say about racism and white supremacy in Tucson. Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
