Building Black Power: Creating sustainable change in the Black community

June 25 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free
How do we create sustainable infrastructure in the Black community?

In light of the recent global protests against racism, calls to #DefundThePolice and the ravages of the COVID-19 pandemic, one question has been repeatedly asked:

“How can the Black community create sustainable change for ourselves?”

This discussion will focus on attempting to answer that question by focusing on one word: infrastructure.

Structural racism/white supremacy have always created roadblocks to our community building the necessary framework to protect and provide for our communities. Many of us are exhausted with talking about “the problem” and want to build more sustainable solutions to the many challenges our community faces.
