Building a Black Movement is a series of sessions for people of color to take up space, heal, and sustain a powerful movement. This session's theme is around our communities building political power and our communities healing. Join community members working with Black Lives Matter Minneapolis and other organizations to connect, be energized, and decide together how we will put forth new policy solutions for the city of Minneapolis, how peaceful direct action tactics work, and find a way that you can personally connect and contribute to the movement that is local and spreading across the globe.
