Hate Crimes & Intersectionality

Episode 8,  Mar 20, 2021, 01:35 AM

The #SistersInLaw discuss the tragedy in Atlanta and try to make sense of it through the lens of hate crime laws and intersectionality, share the importance of the Violence Against Women Act and look at racism in our most important institutions.

After the tragic shooting in Atlanta, the #SistersInLaw  take on the epidemic of racism and misogyny in the country.  First, they examine the potential for hate crimes charges in the recent shooting and they can apply, before looking at the intersectionality angle, and the legacy of racism in some of our most important systems.  Then the #sisters take your questions!
