Join DC residents who attended the Movement for Black Lives (M4BL) convening as they offer reflections on what they experienced in Cleveland - the facilitated sessions, the importance of all-Black spaces, the transphobic incidents and subsequent calling in of cis folx by trans* and gender non-conforming people, the overall feeling of a family reunion, and much more.
Then, let's bring M4BL back to DC as we highlight current Black Liberation work in the District. Connect with community members, learn about upcoming actions you can take part in, and join local organizations fighting for a sustainable Black community in DC.
More than anything, we hope to offer a safe space in which Black people can let loose, connect, relax, cry, laugh, dance - much like the intended space at M4BL.
Let’s continue to scheme and build together as we fight for a DC in which Black people thrive.
*Note: this will be a Black-only space.*
