Event description
2019 Bettye Davis African American Summit: Moving Towards Hope Together

About this Event

The overall goal of the summit is to serve as the principal forum and voice for the African American community in addressing critical issues. The intent of the summit is to connect culturally, building a network of support and possibilities together. All are designed to inspire attendees to build up and stand out as communities of color. The only other African American summit ever in Alaska was held decades ago by Senator Davis.

The African American Summit is FREE and open to the community.

EMPOWER All workshops (Economics, Justice, Education, Health, and Politics and Youth) are designed to inspire attendees to build up and stand out as communities of color.

EMPOWER allows participants to embrace their cultural identity by developing trust, unity, and support by gaining the confidence, knowledge and skills necessary to create strong and authentic communities of color.

EMPOWER hopes to attract leaders within. Through self-exploration, community empowerment and civic engagement, attendees will be able to develop a vision for community, increase visibility of communities of color, and advocate for one another.
