Tonight, part of the APEX Express crew will forgo our regular programming to cover the recent protests in Oakland in support of Black Lives Matter. We’ll talk with two practitioners from the nationwide call for Healing Justice for Black Lives Matters event from today about the importance of healing work in movement building. We’ll also hear a quick report back from the student protest on Monday.

Finally, we make space to reflect on Monday’s visionary shutdown of the Oakland Police Department. How did this action come together? And what lessons can folks in other cities take from their experience? We’ll talk with organizers from the Black Brunch, Bay Area Solidarity Action Team, and #Asians4BlackLives.
