Black Millennial Convention
Join VoteRunLead at The Black Millennial Political Convention which aims to increase engagement of Black Millennials in the political sphere and shed a light on policy issues impacting black communities. The goal of the convention is to connect black Millennials of African descent from across the country, increase black political leadership, and inspire civic engagement. Whether one is an elected official, a staffer, a fundraiser, a community organizer, work with or volunteer with a non-profit, or looking for different ways to get involved to make your community better, this convention is for any everyone who believes in Black Millennial Political Excellence.
The inaugural theme for this year’s convening, The Advocacy of Policy, Pipeline and Power for the People, will focus on the roles black millennials play in the creation of smart policy, the development of political and community pipelines, and the harnessing of political and social power. This convening will take place over a span of four days and will seek to raise awareness and encourage the political action of black millennials through a series of workshops, training, and policy briefings revolving around the needs of the overarching Black community. As a part of our days of action, droves of civically engaged, politically prepared and actively trained young people will journey to Capitol Hill to meet with lawmakers, to make the case for smart policy changes and recommend smarter policy solutions that will protect and preserve the needs of the American people. In addition, to Hill Day and training activities, the Convention, seeks to recognize the unwavering support of Black millennial leaders across the county.
