EVENTS: Advancement Project’s National Office
June 10 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

In 2045, a majority of Americans will be people of color. The question is: are you ready to leverage your power?  

Advancement Project National Office is preparing now to help communities of color envision a world where Black and Brown people are free and safe – and empowered. We are kicking off The 2045 Project, a forward-looking series on racial justice issues featuring visionaries, influencers and movement activists. This new series aims to envision the future we want to build as people of color as we become the majority, and what it will take to get there. It all starts June 10, with our first 2045 Project conversation.

And save the date for the next 2045 Project: The Revolution=Black Women+Girls on July 16, 2019, 5:30-7:30pm at the True Reformer Building in Washington, DC.
