Organizing for Racial Justice After the Inauguration
When: Wed, Mar 03 2021 1:00pm
About this Event
As the Biden Administration completes its first month in office, they have had to manage several ongoing crises inherited from the Trump Administration, including an insurgent White Nationalist movement. The ongoing COVID-19 crisis has disproportionately affected Black, Latinx, Indigenous and other communities of color, highlighting entrenched structural and political disparities and worsening the racial wealth gap. How is this new Administration centering racial justice outcomes in crafting federal policy to address these issues as well as police brutality, immigrant detention, voter suppression and disenfranchisement, and student debt burden? The current Administration was voted in thanks to organizing efforts led largely by Black women—so what can our communities expect from the Biden Administration over the next four years?
Join us for the third 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 to:
- Build connections and alliances with leaders across the country to develop a cohesive vision for racial justice;
- Elevate and center innovative community-led strategies and policies led by BIPOC communities;
- Generate collective power to move towards action
- Shift and frame the national narrative to respond to the rapidly changing needs of our communities;
- Identify policy priority areas and clear calls to action to continue to push for a just, multiracial democracy.
