Changemakers: Movement Leaders on Civil Rights in an Uncivil Time

Changemakers: Movement Leaders on Civil Rights in an Uncivil Time

This event was part of our People, Place & Power series, made possible by support from the San Francisco Foundation’s Bay Area Leads Fund.

Black Lives Matter. Immigrant rights. Climate justice. Are demands for change leading to lasting change? Are we rewriting the rules, or just arguing about them? How do movements — their leaders and their members — successfully build power and spur lasting change? What can we learn from leaders of recent efforts and from history? At a time of great disruption, join us as we continue our series on People, Place and Power with a discussion with movement leaders on building power and voice.
