This is How We Do It: Youth Led Racial Justice

A new generation of racial justice leaders are interrupting and innovating in the ways racial justice work is made relevant in our times. In various ways, young people are working creatively, intersectionally and courageously to set our nation on course for the racially just future we deserve. Who are some of the leaders guiding this next epoch? What models, tools, practices and cultural strategies are there to build a more just, inclusive foundation for their generation and the ones that follow? Join in this conversation amongst movement makers, as they share thoughts on what’s hot in racial justice now, and what's on the come up in the years ahead.

Speakers: FM Supreme, Ramiro Luna, Sharon Davies, Jaime-Jin Lewis, Key Jackson
