Session: The Purpose of Power
5 p.m. Tuesday, May 4
When Alicia Garza wrote a love letter to Black people on Facebook, she launched the now-famous hashtag #blacklivesmatter. But she wants us to understand: A hashtag is not a movement. Organizing for change comes from the grassroots, and is the key to a better, more equitable future. She will be joined by Errin Haines, founder and Editor-at-Large for The 19th, a nonprofit, nonpartisan newsroom covering the intersection of women, politics and policy, and an MSNBC Contributor. She is an award-winning political journalist focused on issues of race, gender and politics.
