Black History Month Celebration

February is Black History Month.  It is a time to celebrate our Black leaders – past and present – and take stock of how far we’ve come and how far we still need to go to win true racial, social, and economic justice for Black communities (and all marginalized communities, especially communities of color).  Please find below the link to the recording of the February 18th event and corresponding slides and videos. Thank you for taking the time to engage and listen to voices from our leaders and communities.
