About This Event
An evening with Patrisse Cullors, co-founder of Black Lives Matter
The Center for Civil and Human Rights at Gonzaga Law, the Center for Public Humanities, and the Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion welcome scholar Patrisse Cullors to Gonzaga University.
Cullors co-founded a global movement in 2013 with a viral twitter hashtag #BlackLivesMatter. She is the founder of Dignity and Power Now and a senior fellow at MomRising, dedicated to ending maternal mortality and morbidity. Professor Cullors is an artist, organizer, educator, and popular public speaker, who has been a leader in the struggle for equality and justice for two decades. #BlackLivesMatter started in 2013 following the acquittal of George Zimmerman for the killing of Trayvon Martin. Since that time, it has grown to an international organization with dozens of chapters and thousands of determined activists fighting anti-Black racism worldwide.
