The movement to celebrate, organize, support, and defend Black communities from police and state violence and assert the right to survive and thrive has grown into a national and worldwide movement for systemic transformation and deep healing. A new chapter is being written in the long journey towards racial justice and Black liberation.
A set of major convenings this summer are creating space for Black activists to realize that promise fully on their own terms; the Movement for Black Lives Convening is taking place in July, and is raising fund very quickly to cover the costs of convening and of participation by activists from across the country. Join this webinar to hear from convening organizers and fellow grantmakers about opportunities to support this important groundswell of momentum to build for the long term.
