Summit of Hope was created purely from a desire to develop a platform where we can learn how to impactfully advocate and stand up for issues that demand justice on a global scale. It is our mission to provide opportunities to rise up, gain greater awareness and visibility on issues that matter and drive change with a fresh, clear perspective.
In our current climate, there is no question that our inaugural event would support Black Lives Matter. Black generational pain runs deep and with the influx of severe racial violence, sitting still in silence is no longer an option.
In the words of Layla Saad, “There is a mass awakening in anti-racist consciousness, and the collective forward movement towards change, and a new world. A world where people of all races have the freedom to love in the dignity of their full humanity.”
Conversations within our communities have shown there is a massive desire to take action for BLM, but many of those action steps lack clarity. So, whether you are looking to do more, confused on what to do altogether – or both – Summit of Hope will not only open and center us, but also teach us how to be effective advocates moving forward in this Revolution.
Summit of Hope: Black Lives Matter will be a 3-part virtual event that brings us together from coast to coast to develop effective, accountable action steps to help fight for freedom, justice and equality. We will begin with education; a critical step in sustainable activism. We will discuss specific ways for productive advocacy that will help incite change. We will learn from a professional equity director and will collaborate with activists, speakers and influential leaders to get us as uncomfortable as possible, so we might truly understand the work that must be done. We will end in solidarity together, so we can be strong, non-optical allies for the Black community for the rest of ou days to come.
Summit of Hope is forever inclusive of every race, gender, sexuality, age and creed. Our inaugural event is also free. Voluntary donations to Grassroots Law Project will be accepted upon registration.
