The UIC Social Justice Initiative released these videos as a part of the Social Justice Portal Project launch.

The Portal Project, inspired by Dr. King’s use of the term the “fierce urgency of now,” is responding to the fierce urgency of this moment by convening and curating a series of discussions, forums and working groups, involving scholars and activists, to address some of the most pressing issues of the day: the demands for prison abolition, climate justice, and economic democracy.

Each of the videos are created by the Matters of the Earth Production team.
