Justice Rising: Our History. Our Future.
Featuring Dolores Huerta, Melissa Harris-Perry, Alicia Garza, and Senator Kevin de León
Every year, the Economic Summit brings together a diverse array of leaders to connect, brainstorm, celebrate and strategize on important economic issues affecting communities of color.
From climate change, healthcare, leadership development, art and activism, to grassroots organizing and more — this unique gathering “connects the dots” in a way that’s unlike any other meeting or conference we know of.
In these turbulent times, our 2018 Economic Summit marks The Greenlining Institute’s 25th anniversary – drawing strength from two and a half decades of racial justice advocacy, honoring those who came before us, and looking ahead to a more equitable future. Leaders of color from across the country will take the stage to look beyond today’s challenges and explore a future with racial equity in all policies.
We invite you to join nearly 1000 advocates, activists, artists, students, scholars and leaders from across professional sectors for a day of connection, mobilization, and inspiring conversation.
