What happens when you hear a siren? For some it means relief and protection – but for others it signals the exact opposite. Supporting children in police stations, courtrooms, prisons and the community, racial justice campaigner Temi Mwale has witnessed and experienced the trauma caused by systemic racism. Black people are over-policed and under protected and the criminal justice system is broken. Temi argues that another world is possible but it requires us to completely reimagine what justice feels like. We can only win the fight for racial equity through international solidarity, practicing transformative justice and ensuring that organisations are held accountable. Temi is a racial justice campaigner and the Founder & Executive Director of The 4Front Project – a member-led youth organisation empowering young people and communities to fight for justice, peace and freedom. She focuses on fighting against institutional racism and is passionate about working towards a world where we use a radically different approach to resolving conflict within society. In her spare time, you’ll find her nurturing her plants, going for long walks, listening to neosoul music and cooking vegan food. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
