Grassroot Lessons in Advocacy

Grassroot organizations, and the individuals that lead them, work on the front line of the battle against inequity and have always been important. But in this current time, the real work to make our communities stronger is being done by those who understand their communities best.

Advocacy organizations working at the regional, state, or even county and city levels, can sometimes overlook the vital role these groups have on how equity and justice are achieved.

This virtual forum will lift up the voices of three grassroots organizations and individuals who are putting their words into action when it comes to racial equity and support for those unjustly impacted by today’s “normal”.
