Black Lives Matter - Locelle

Black Lives Matter

At Locelle, we want to go Beyond Blackout Tuesday and learn, share and actively show up against racism. We are dedicating this page to our panel event we hosted as well as resources you can access.

PANEL EVENT RECORDING

On June 11, we hosted a panel event featuring two black women and one white woman with a biracial child on how they feel and their raw authentic  yet different experiences. It was an incredible opportunity for non-Black people to listen, acknowledge, and be allies to our Black people and fight against racism.
