For the Culture: Our moment, Our Movement

Last year we gathered to engage in some insightful discussions around how we (black and brown public oriented leaders) should be navigating the public service space as we transitioned into a new era of politics. Since then, there has been a resurgence of pride in our (black) culture and reverence for black excellence and achievement. From #blackgirlmagic to #blackboyjoy and #WakandaForever, we have reinvested in resistance via the arts and culture This year's conference will focus on the "how-to's" of using culture and alternative methods to create change!
