Black Agenda 2020

Wednesday February 19
6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Please join Black Young Professionals of Detroit along with activists and community leaders for a potent discussion on current and future state of Black Politics.

We plan to review:

  • What has transpired since the 2016 elections
  • What are our current needs locally and nationally
  • How we move forward with meeting those needs
  • How you can get involved in moving the needle

The format will be a moderated panel discussion followed by a Q&A session.

Detroit is a special city in America’s Black landscape: Detroit is the largest Black-majority city in America and a bellwether for the American economy. If we can achieve in Detroit, we can set a precedent for America. With the said, Detroit is experiencing a resurgence in economic activity that is creating a tale of two cities masked by the facade of one. People are attempting to overwrite the existing history without the inclusion of those who were here long before them. And people who have been here for the long haul are trying to position their families and businesses to be included in the growth. The discussion to be had at this event will serve as an opportunity for the activation of young professionals and community members-at-large to remember the criticality of voting and being active in the civic process because our fight is not over. The millennial generation is primed and best poised to take our community to the next level; we have to take the baton and move forward.
