Anti Racist Action Conference
Tonight on Circle A Radio we will bring you audio from the sixteenth annual anti racist action network conference. This year, the conference was in Portland, Oregon from July 22 to the 25, 2010. We’ll focus on the Anti Racist Action History Panel, and the panel on Self-Defense, called Prepared, Not Paranoid: Conflict Resolution & Confrontation Management.
We also had this community announcement at the end of the show:
A few weeks ago Willamette Week published a heart wrenching story aboutAntjuanece Brown‘s battle against felony charges which included sex abuse, and creating child pornography.
The incident that prompted Washington County to press these charges came only from a few suggestive cell phone pictures between Brown and her 16-year-old girlfriend Jolene Jenkins.
Both girls agree that the relationship was not only completely consensual, but that the 2 never even had sex.
In November, Brown, 20, pleaded guilty to a lesser charge but still faces about $3,000 in court fees. Money raised will help Brown pay off that debt. There is a facebook group where is is possible to donate to help cover those court fees.
