Momentum: A Virtual Summit on Racial Equity
MAY 5-6, 2021 | 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. PDT

This year The Greenlining Institute hosted our 28th Annual Economic Summit -- Momentum: A Virtual Summit on Racial Equity. We took our theme from the renewed sense of hope and optimism taking root across the country as we  emerge from the overlapping crisis of the past year. As we breathe a collective sigh of relief that our democracy has withstood its biggest modern-day test, we know that now is no time for complacency. Our speakers and panels captured how this moment is a time of momentum -- a time for advocates, organizers, activists, and artists to come together to strengthen the movement for equity.

It’s clear that this moment is a time of momentum -- a time for all of us to come together to strengthen our movement for equity. We would thank you to the 1,500+ change makers who joined us for two days of virtual networking, inspirational talks, and community building. 

The Greenlining Institute’s 28th Annual Economic Summit was more than just a virtual conference. It was a unique gathering where innovation, art and activism aligned. Greenlining President and CEO Debra Gore-Mann opened this year's festivities with grounding words hopes and optimism before introducing a lively fireside chat with New Georgia Project's Nsé Ufot and USC Professor Manuel Pastor. Click below to view video highlights on our blog.

What attendees are saying

"Today presented many moments of reckoning- from the historical backdrop that informed the creation of the police to the simplicity of the solutions presented. It was a reminder that this movement needs all of our participation, not just to dismantle systems that do not serve us but to build systems that do."
