Activists and practitioners were already preparing for a tumultuous election year before the COVID-19 pandemic hit our shores. Now, the months ahead present immense challenges – and opportunities – for redefining how civic engagement is practiced for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) communities.

Join us on September 10 for a timely discussion with leading practitioners who are effectively integrating digital strategies with authentic power-building while navigating a never-before-seen civic environment. All share a mission of giving real agency to vulnerable communities at the front lines of the fight against the virus.

  • Arianna Genis, North Carolina State Director, Mijente
  • Simone Smith, Development Manager, Wisconsin Voices
  • Vincent Pan, Co-Executive Director, Chinese for Affirmative Action
