It's a travesty that Black and Brown men are still rotting in jail for cannabis while white men are getting rich off it legally This should've been the biggest focal point of 420 if you ask me smh
April 13, 2018 : " In 40 yrs of professional work for change , I have never seen so many people, across every line of identity, coalesce around a vision of inclusion, fairness, and dignity" It certainly was an extreme honor and pleasure to personally meet Angela Glover Blackwell , CEO of PolicyLink as she stepped down to pass the torch onto the new president , Michael McAfee .
The focus of this summit was about claiming our power and shaping our destiny and doing so with radical imagination .
Something I didn't understand to its entirety , is the simple fact that by 2030 America's "minorities" will become the majority in terms of population . what I learned is how significant this national demographic shift will become a force molding the future of this country and its government , especially local . needless to say, "the last shall become first " and the ones closest to the struggle have the solution to our nations problems.
I became aware even the more of the dire urgency it is for our generation,especially, to come out of this individualistic consciousness and into the We-consciousness ; becoming the leaders we are destined to be. (PolicyLink is a national research and action institute dedicated to advancing economic and social equity. It focuses on policies affecting low-income communities and communities of color) ask me for the link of sessions recorded if you really tryna plug into the future ;) #GloryToGod#RadicalImagination#PolicyLink#EquitySummit2018#Equity#GHETTO#ChangeGoneCome#JoinTheMovement#DitchTheMoment#Reality#YouWillMakeADifference#BeTheChangeYouWishToSee#DontJustMarch#RunForLocalOffice#DefendOurFuture#ClimateChange#TellThemWeAreRising#HBCU#SCSU#TheFutureIsOurs
