This political moment is bigger than winning elections or even enacting progressive policies. The bigger picture—our end goal—is to create a movement and a society that is equitable and just for all. To achieve our goals, we must dismantle white supremacy and the systems that perpetuate injustice. What does it take to break down systems of oppression that have existed for centuries? What roles can each of us play to support the work of those on the frontlines of injustice?

Speakers include: Reps. Ilhan Omar and Ayanna Pressley, Alicia Garza, Color of Change’s Rashad Robinson, NDN Collective’s Nick Tilsen, immigration activists Alejandro Fuentes-Mena and Zenen Jaimes Perez, and Community Change’s Dorian Warren.
