The New Civil Rights Movement: Undocumented, Black, and Unafraid

How have progressive organizations been able to shift cultural narratives in their fight for justice? What does intersectionality look like in practice, as an organizer and from within an organization? How do we live progressive values and win? Join us for a conversation about community organizing with Heather Booth, lifelong strategist, Freedom Summer participant, and founder of the Midwest Academy; and two rising stars of the next generation of progressive organizing: Cristina Jiménez, co-founder and Executive Director of United We Dream and Rashad Robinson, President of Color of Change. The speakers will draw from decades of collective experience in this intergenerational conversation. Q&A to follow.

This event is the final conversation of the Only If We Organize series. The series will be transcribed to form the basis of a book, to serve as an account of this moment and a resource for the generations to come. Visit onlyifweorganize.org to learn more.
