Civic Engagement, Participation and Activism in Communities of Color

Featuring Leaders from Front and Centered

Monday, November 21, 2016

1:15 – 4:15 pm

at Social Venture Partners – 3rd floor conference room*

Civic participation and engagement of communities of color has enormous potential to lead to lasting changes in our communities across the sweep of issues of paramount concern – health, environment, economic justice, equitable access to jobs, housing and more. The stakes for the work of the next 6-8 years couldn’t be higher and the full participation of people of color will be critical.

You will hear about outcomes of this year’s elections and there will be time to discuss what lessons were learned about voter turnout and what this might mean now as well as looking ahead to 2017 and beyond to redistricting following the 2020 Census, as well as what specific opportunities to support voter education, and leadership development in communities of color.
