For nineteen years, YWCA Madison’s Racial Justice Summit has been a space and experience that has brought people in the Madison Community together for deep learning and invitation to action for racial justice. In the 2020 reality of COVID-19, as well as the immense shift in the national conversation around racism and the need for systemic change following the uprisings in defense of Black Life, we intend to build on the experiences of prior Summits to offer a virtual gathering place for even deeper learning, vision casting, and movement building.
This year’s theme is Reconstruction. Centering Blackness – A Path to Build Collective Power and Justice for All. This theme invites us all to radically build on ancestral decolonizing ways of being, relating and co-creating in society, as well as to develop new paradigms.
