Dear all,

we are back with our Disruptive Fridays and I would like to invite you
to join us today Friday June 12, at 5pm CEST for our online debate. The
speakers all have specific experiences from the fight for justice &
equality, against racism, poverty, marginalization, homelessness,
criminalization and police brutality. What can we learn from their
struggles & achievements, to inform our own fights around the world?

Together with us will be Mutale Nkonde (Expert in Tech & Race, CEO of AI
For The People, Fellow Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society at
Harvard), Melissa Segura (Investigative Reporter, BuzzFeed News, US) and
Marshall Trammell (Music Research Strategist, based in Oakland).

I hope to see you there!

men who had each spent decades behind bars. In 2018, the series earned
her the George Polk Award in Journalism for local reporting and
recognition as a finalist for Harvard's Goldsmith Award. She is at work
on a book building on her Chicago story that examines the cracks in the
