Aly Wane came from Senegal as a child, and came out in 2012 as a black man without documents. He’s been working with one of the founders of Black Lives Matter, Opal Tometi, and others to start up an organization for black people without documents. Aly is on the Syracuse Peace Council’s Steering Committee and has a wonderful grasp of the interconnectedness of our many issues, as well as of our solutions. You’re sure to be inspired by his wisdom and insight in exploring “Where Do We Go From Here?” in his keynote.
Many allies and vendors will be tabling, as will our taskforces. We’ll enjoy music both before dinner with Saxman Slim, and after the talk with Preach Freedom; and we’ll celebrate the past year and all the wonderful people – including you – who make it all possible! We look forward to seeing you there!!
