IMAGINE MORE: Building Political Power of the Most Impacted
The Eagleton Institute is pleased to co-sponsor IMAGINE MORE: Building Political Power of the Most Impacted. This series brings together one of the largest and most diverse lineups of New Jersey organizations and voices from across the ideological spectrum to develop an action plan for racial justice and reparations. Participants include national thought leaders, philanthropic and community-based organizations, policy advocates, jurists, and local activists who have been directly impacted by injustice.
Through a series of 6 virtual events IMAGINE MORE will work to educate the public on reparations and how remedying racial injustice will create a more stable and prosperous future for all of New Jersey. At each event the speakers will offer strategies for advancing racial justice and repairing the harmful impacts of systemic racism. The events will connect residents with change-making organizations so that they can take action in their own communities. Following each event, participants will receive resources and information to guide them into action for racial justice and reparations.
In New Jersey, political power has been concentrated in the hands of a few, leaving many marginalized residents unrepresented in the conversations that shape our society. To build equitable communities, we must ensure that everyone has a voice in the process. Join us on July 21st at 6:00 p.m. for Building Political Power of the Most Impacted, the sixth installment of the IMAGINE MORE: Racial Justice Begins with Us virtual series. This event will discuss policy solutions we can seek to gain equity in political power.
Attendance is free and open to all. Help spread the word by forwarding this event to your community.
