A SHARED VISION
BLACK NATIONAL CONVENTION
We are a collective that centers and is rooted in Black communities, in turn we recognize a shared struggle with all oppressed peoples; and that collective liberation will be a product of all of our work. It is our hope that by working together to create and amplify a shared agenda, building in solidarity, that we can continue to move towards a world in which the full humanity and dignity of all people is recognized.
MOVEMENT FOR BLACK LIVES
In response to the sustained and increasingly visible violence against Black communities in the U.S. and globally, a collective of more than 50 organizations representing thousands of Black people from across the country have come together with renewed energy, strategy and purpose to articulate a common vision and agenda: The Movement for Black Lives (M4BL).
THE ELECTORAL JUSTICE PROJECT
Ensures millions of Black citizens are able to successfully access and participate in their right to Democracy across the United States. Implements regional interventions and distributes resources to strengthen local power building and address endured systemic barriers to living in a functioning democracy as Black citizens. We build the world where Black voters are engaging in meaningful, Black-led civic engagement to ensure the well-being and safety of all Black people.
A COLLECTIVE IMPACT
We will co-author and present the Democratic National Committee and candidates(s) with a list that is inclusive of but not limited to the following issues for immediate response:
Our time together at the BNC will also consist of work sessions in service of local and regional power building, sharing interventions and civic engagement strategies, and ultimately demonstrating how we can build a Black political home for the Movement including how our vision for Black Lives Policy demands must be met and not just used as point scoring language when in front of strategic audiences or when politically convenient.
