Is the question being asked by ‘Blak Sox’ in an event in collaboration with Operation Black Vote (OBV) and Manchester’s ‘Hideaway Youth Project’.
Blak Sox is a new social action platform to help communities think strategically about responses to an ever changing political & economic environment, essentially “Do for self”, they say.
Having done one of their two series of powerful focus groups for community change, for leaders aged 16-30 in London on 5 February, Black Sox comes to Manchester on Tuesday 9 February 2016.
Spearheaded with the title ‘Become part of the global effort to end the drug fuelled war on black communities’, the collective will present “the shocking facts about the war on drugs and the numbers of Black men in UK prisons”, they said.
Whilst outlining how these numbers can be reduced, the group will discuss what is being done and what more can be done through social action to reduce violence in black communities.
The Hideaway Youth Project centre on Crescent Moss Side will host our city’s event, which will have experts – like British activist and politician Lee Jasper – delivering specialist analysis and critically acclaimed training.
The event will run from 5.30pm to 9pm and is one not to be missed for sure.
