Join us at half-day conference Back to Our Roots
Back to Our Roots
Connecting Policy to the BIPOC Community in a Historical Context
We’re excited to launch the inaugural half-day conference Back to Our Roots: Connecting Policy to the BIPOC Community in a Historical Context on Saturday, February 26 from 12pm to 4pm ET. It is a great opportunity for the full grassroots advocate network to learn more about the historical context of public policies as they have affected the BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) communities.
Inspired by the RESULTS BIPOC Caucus, at this event we will have the opportunity to come back to our roots and learn more about the historical context of the issues we advocate on. Back to Our Roots will feature speakers from the African-American, Asian-American, Pacific Islander, and Native communities; panels and workshops will present a deeper understanding of the roots of systemic oppression, how it grows into the issues of poverty we witness on a domestic and global scale, and most importantly, what needs to be done now to end systemic oppression and build a future where everyone can thrive.
Confirmed speakers include:
Jennifer Mei Koo (古珍妮), RESULTS Grassroots Board
Sarah Izabel, Volunteer Advocate, RESULTS VA
Dr. Guerda Nicolas, Professor, University of Miami and Co-Founder, Ayiti Community Trust
Dr. Jesslyn C. Anderson, Author and Nurse Practitioner
Parker Gilkesson, Center for Law and Social Policy
Entertainment by Pamela M. Covington, Volunteer Advocate, RESULTS GA
You may register here. Registration by Wednesday, February 23 is encouraged. Note that these sessions will not be recorded.
