South Asians in Defense of Black Lives

South Asians in Defense of Black Lives: A Conversation with Zoé Samudzi

South Asians across the United States must organize ourselves to amplify the demands of the Movement for Black Lives. Join national South Asian organizations to discuss how to organize our community associations, businesses, families and religious institutions to divest from policing, push for anti-racist policies, and practice intra-racial solidarity that builds safer communities.

Zoé Samudzi is a writer, photographer, and a sociology doctoral candidate at University of California - San Francisco. She is a Black abolitionist, Buddhist and Ambedkarite.
