Day 2 highlights & Saturday streaming guide

NETROOTS NATION HIGHLIGHTS

• This morning’s keynote (with NextGen Climate’s Tom Steyer, the NAACP’s Jacqui Patterson, Green for All’s Michelle Romero and Environmental Action’s Anthony Rogers-Wright) on the intersection of climate change and environmental justice) was a deep dive into what needs to happen to stem the effects of climate change for our most vulnerable communities.Click here to watch the archived stream and check out our Medium wrap-up.

Friday afternoon’s Digital CultureSHIFT keynote focused on using technology to build power for racial justice movements. Rashad Robinson, Linda Sarsour, Autumn Marie, Joe Torres, Cayden Mak, Samhita Mukhopadhyay and Malkia Cyril dug into how big data and digital technology can build power for long-term social change or—if unchecked—enforce a new era of Jim Crow.
