Freedom Bound says
The lack of accountability in the justice system resulted in protest and riots across the United States. Despite the recent surge in activism, the nation continues to witness senseless acts of violence and injustice against African-Americans in the form of state sponsored violence, and acts of domestic terrorism. There is an undeniable trend of the dehumanization of Black people. We are past the point of simply being angry. It is time to get angry and organize.The Houston Black community needs unity in order to push for racial justice.

The State of the Black Lives convening will be a space to start joint community organizing. We are expecting Black people from all over the greater Houston area to address community needs, create a list of demands, and delegate tasks for coordinated racial equity projects. We may not have all of the answers individually, but together under one roof we can develop a more precise solution.

The summit will operate on an intersectional framework by creating an open space for conversations regarding the intersections of oppression within the Black community in the form of caucuses. Each caucus will develop strategies to build a sustainable movement and plan an organized effort for greater change. These strategic conversations will include direct action, policy-making, legal defense, media, economic autonomy and cultural change, etc...

We hope that this convening will kick off a highly organized network of people creating change.
