BMC & VoteRunLead Film and Discussion with Congresswoman Ilhan Omar
In honor of the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation’s Annual Legislative Conference, VoteRunLead and Black Millennial Convention (BMC) will be joined by Congresswoman Ilhan Omar to present the Washington, DC premiere of “Time for Ilhan”, the documentary film about Congresswoman Omar’s first run for elected office. Co-sponsored by Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley.
The screening will be followed by a discussion with Congresswoman Omar, Erika Alexander, & “Time for Ilhan” director Norah Shapiro from 2pm-4pm at The Outrage (1722 14th St NW Washington DC). RSVP Today!
Congresswoman Omar is an alumna of VoteRunLead, the nation’s largest and most diverse women’s political leadership training organization having participated in their #RunAsYouAre training program in 2014. The Black Millennial Convention is helmed by fellow VoteRunLead alumna and former Binghamton City Council member Lea Webb. The Black Millennial Convention sheds light on the policy issues impacting Black communities with the goal of connecting millennials of African descent from across the country to increase Black political leadership and inspire civic engagement.
The Washington, DC premiere of “Time for Ilhan” will be held in tandem with the annual Congressional Black Caucus Foundation Annual Legislative Conference as Black millennials look to maximize their collective political impact ahead of 2020 and beyond.
