Dustin Washington, Community Justice Program Director for AFSC's West Region, shares three tips for anti-racist organizing based on his experience as an organizer with the Tyree Scott Freedom School. For over 12 years the Tyree Scott Freedom School has been teaching young people in the Seattle area about institutional racism and community organizing.
Participants from AFSC's Youth Undoing Institutional Racism and Juvenile Justice program were invited to deliver the keynote speech at the Seattle Race Conference in August 2013.
They spoke about their campaign to end the prisonindustrial complex, and encounters in their daily lives that offer room for people to transform guilt into activism.
