Darin Dorsey recently spoke with five Black movement leaders about their experiences of anti-Blackness in the movement to end gender-based violence and ways to create a movement that is inclusive of Black workers and survivors. 

For organizations striving to serve as allies and accomplices to Black communities, these five podcasts are a tool to better understand how they can fulfill their commitments and create a movement that addresses gender-based violence against all people while following the lead of the most marginalized among us. 

Participants: Darin Dorsey, Rooting Movements;    Valériana Chikoti-Bandua Estes, Necessary Interruptions
