Join us for Night Out for Safety and Liberation on August 2 from 5-8pm at the Detroit Public Library – Main Branch and help change the conversation. Light refreshments and child care services will be available.
To kick off the event, the the Ella Baker Center for Human Rights will host a 1 hour TweetChat on Tuesday, August 2nd at 2pm EST. The TweetChat is an online conversation that will take place on Twitter. Participants can tweet their questions to @EllaBakerCenter using the hashtag #SafetyIs and or #NOSL16.
