Black communities have been particularly hard hit by the rising tide of inequality in today’s economy. Please join us for an exciting briefing that will feature Kimberly Freeman Brown, Sean Thomas Breitfeld, Linda Burnham and Steven Pitts, the authors of two important reports on the state of Black workers. Titled And Still I Rise and #Black Workers Matter, these two groundbreaking reports offer numerous lessons for funders who are interested in expanding economic opportunity for African American communities. We will also hear from local leaders about the launch of the Bay Area Black Worker Center and other important efforts underway to address the Black jobs crisis.

We will also be joined by Danielle Mahones of the Bay Area Black Worker Center (BABWC). BABWC is a new organization that was founded to engage and build leadership among Black workers to address the Black jobs crisis and advance solutions to deepening economic disparities for Black families in the Bay Area and nationally.
Funders who are interested in economic opportunity, workforce development, asset building, and gender and racial equity.
