#BlackSpring has begun in earnest around the world. In Baltimore, Chicago, Ferguson, Oakland, New York, Los Angeles, Cleveland, Charleston, and cities across the US & the globe, we continue to stand together to build a world where #BlackLivesMatter. There is a need for a sustained and coordinated movement that can meet the collective challenge of organizing against state violence in Black communities. Black folks are coming together to create a powerful coalition against systemic racism in one of the most dynamic and organic movements that this country has seen in decades. That’s why we’re excited to announce a space where we can build on our successes, sharpen our skills and chart a path for the road ahead. Join us in Cleveland, Ohio July 24th-26th at the first ever national Movement for Black Lives convening. Build. Heal. Learn. Organize. All Black lives are needed and welcome. Our tent is big. We are calling on everyone, because this space is yours too. We fight for black men AND women. This movement is yours if you are queer, trans or none of the above. If you are disabled. If you are formerly incarcerated or undocumented. If this is your first call to action or you are a movement elder. We need you. What side of history will you be on?
