After attending the OFC Free Palestine Virtual Protest, Dee from Black Phoenix Organizing Collective (BPOC) reached out to collaborate. From there we quickly pulled together combining their next event Coffee & Convos. We invited members of the One Free Community People of the Global Majority (aka BIPOC) affinity group to join in the first hybrid meeting!
