Turning Anger Into Action: What Happened to Anton Black?

Wednesday, July 15, 2020 at 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm


Registration is required. You will receive a link to the virtual meeting with your registration confirmation email. You must be opted in to receive SSM emails to receive the confirmation. Proceeds will go towards a racial equity project in Montgomery County, MD.

Anger. Fear. Pain. Grief. How can we channel our emotional responses to the recent events surrounding the murders of Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, George Floyd, and so many others into productive action to achieve lasting and meaningful social change? Each Wednesday in July join community members, change-makers, and experts in a series of virtual town halls to address topics like How can I make a change in my community? What actions can I take now? What are my rights as a protestor? How do I educate children about activism? How can artists be activists?

Each will end with an interactive Q&A with panelists.

What Happened to Anton Black?
Anton Black, an Eastern Shore teenager, died in police custody nearly two years ago. Black was one of 31 people to die in Maryland in an officer-involved incident in 2018. “Anton’s Law” can prevent this from happening in the future. Come learn how to advocate for effective change in our community.
