“There’s never been a more important moment to challenge the insidious calculus of white supremacy and how it lives inside our institutions, inside our communities, inside our families than now.”– Solidaire ED Vini Bhansali on the June 4, 2020 episode of All Ears with Abigail Disney
June 4, 2020 Season 1 Episode 6
All Ears is stepping back this week from our COVID-19 focus to turn our attention to the national anguish resulting from the murder of George Floyd by police on May 25th. At the forefront of Abby’s mind is sharing her platform with movement leaders, both as an opportunity to listen and learn. This week Abby talks to Rajasvini Bhansali, the Executive Director of Solidaire Network, about why it’s hard to fund social movements, how white people need to sit with their own discomfort when confronting their own racism, and why profound personal transformation is impossible to do alone.
