Coffee with Comrades


Jun 4, 2020

For this special bonus edition of Coffee with Comades, Pearson is joined by Delilah of Tallahassee Community Action Committee to discuss the ongoing Tallahassee Uprising. The Florida capital has been rocked by one protest after another in the wake of state violence. All across the so-called United States, people have been crying out for justice. Delilah talks about her own experiences here in Tallahassee, exploring the intersections of class, race, and gender identity. What's more, Delilah discusses the harrowing mental health crises engendered by the criminal "justice" system, which disproportionately targets people of color. We close by examining some of the steps we can take to continue to fight for justice and for a world without prisons, police, and states.

Black Lives Matter! 

Trans* Lives Matter!
