Looking Past the Vote: Mobilizing for Racial Justice

Dates: 

January 14, 2021
3:00pm-4:30pm EST

Thanks to the work of Black and Brown organizers and their communities, President-Elect Joe Biden and Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris will be inaugurated in just a few weeks. We had their back, but how is the Biden Administration planning to ensure that the federal government has ours? Despite the Trump Administration’s departure from the White House, Black, Indigenous, and other people of color communities still experience persistent disparities in the form of the racial wealth gap, police brutality, immigration detention, voter suppression and disenfranchisement, student debt burden and COVID-19 rates. What will it take to build on the power of the uprisings of 2020 and historic voter turnout and advance a movement for racial justice?

 

Join us for the second in a series of town hall conversations that centers community power, starting with the vote, then developing movement strategy, and finally organizing for policy change.

 

In this town hall, we will gather with movement leaders from different sectors to examine:

 

How do we grow power, building on record voter turnout and knowing that organizing beyond elections is what will move us toward meaningful change?

 

How do we transform policy with communities at the center of those solutions?

 

How do we transform institutions and sectors -- first by undoing the Executive Order banning anti-racism trainings so that we can at least have these conversations -- and then building more equitable and accountable institutions?

 

And how do we transform culture so that we collectively live and breathe a vision for racial justice?
