About this event

  • 1 day 3 hours
  • Mobile eTicket

Join change agents, thought leaders, and movement builders invested in the work. You can expect to meet community organizers, policy makers, cultural curators, artists, activists, and corporate executives for a convening of thought leaders who are committed to fighting for racial justice and equity.

Sessions will touch on issues around wealth, health, power and cultural preservation as tools of liberation. Attendees will up-skill, build connections, and broaden their perspective on how to grow and sustain movement around racial justice and equity.

  • Health - Rest, Resilience, Boundaries, Healing, & Accessibility
  • Wealth - Generational Wealth & Joy, Racial Wealth Gap, Accessibility to Resources
  • Power - Collaboration, Collectivism, Coalition Building, and Justice Reform (where there’s people, there’s power).
  • Cultural Preservation - Story telling, media, music, art

In the end, we hope conference attendees and presenters will walk away with a shared belief that we can effect change, recognizing our own power, and validating the leadership of the community.
