It will take all of us to secure freedom for Black women, but we are the best authority on a better future. That’s why BlackHer and Liberation in a Generation are bringing together Black women leaders for a two-hour, two-panel summit to (re)imagine and advance our economic liberation.

Rooted in Janelle Jones’s “Black Women Best” framework, the Black Women’s Economic Liberation Summit will elevate the pathways to structural change that are necessary to advance wealth-building opportunities for Black women.

Join us ahead of Juneteenth 2021 and RSVP today.
