Is it possible to build meaningful coalitions between anti-racist movements like Black Lives Matter and the electoral left? Speakers from the USA and the UK will consider the lessons that have been learnt in the last few months since the killing of George Floyd, exploring what a fruitful relationship between mass movements and legislative politics might look like.

Speakers:

Dalia Gebrial is a PhD candidate at the London School of Economics, and an editor at Novara Media.
