On Saturday, August 9, 2014, Raymond Wilford was maced by a Westlake Center security guard while walking to the mall. The guard had been called in to address a shirtless white man who was harassing a group of pro-Palestine demonstrators.
Join us for a community discussion about what happened at Westlake, and what we can do as a community beyond recognizing this events like this as unjust. Led by Charles Mudede, Christa Bell, Pramila Jayapal, Ijeoma Oluo, and moderated by Revered Harriett G. Walden.
Alex Garland will be present to speak about his experience documenting the event.
