Architecture, Design and Race: SHADE presents at Black Lives Matter Pratt

Black Lives Matter is a national movement that values Black life and recognizes the ways in which it is too often imperiled.  The movement was launched by Patrisse Cullors, Alicia Garza, and Opal Tometi in 2012 after George Zimmerman was acquitted for the murder of Trayvon Martin, and his broadened since the subsequent killings and incarceration of Black people, and seeks to affirm "the lives of Black queer and trans folks, disabled folks, Black-undocumented folks, and folks with records, women and Black lives along the gender spectrum.  It centers those that have been marginalized within Black liberation movements.  It is a tactic to (re)build the Black liberation movement."

On Saturday, April 9th, SHADE will present at the Main Hall 210 from 3:30-4:30pm: Architecture, Design and Race: SHADE

SHADE's focus will be on urban resilience among diverse communities who can organize and create safe havens for neighborhood functions and disaster sheltering.
