We’ve got something so juicy for y’all! We can’t wait to rock with you at the 2020 Black National Convention: Building Power and Policy in Defense of Black Lives. We are honoring the elders and ancestors who organized the first National Black Political Convention in Gary, Indiana in 1972.
We are counting down to the 2020 BNC and we’re taking you with us every step of the way. Over the next nine weeks until Friday, August 28, we’ll share updates, stories, and convention previews along with ways you can keep taking action.
We are charting a course from protest to power to the polls in Black November.
We are coming off the heels of a landmark Juneteenth weekend of action, with more than 650 actions nationwide and millions of people engaging all over the world; while we observe the 400th year since the first Africans were enslaved on North American soil; and in a year when COVID-19 has claimed the lives of tens of thousands of Black people.
We need to be together. We deserve it and require it to move forward our vision for Black liberation.
