Changemakers: Movement Leaders on Civil Rights in an Uncivil Time

Black Lives Matter. Immigrant rights. Climate justice. Are demands for change leading to lasting change? Are we rewriting the rules, or just arguing about them? How do movements—their leaders and their members — successfully build power and spur lasting change? What can we learn from leaders of recent efforts and from history? At a time of great disruption, join us as we continue The San Francisco Foundation’s series People, Place and Power with a discussion with Movement Leaders on Building Power and Voice.


Sponsored by the San Francisco Foundation as part of the People, Power, Place Series, which addresses access and equity in the Bay Area.

This program is sold out; no tickets will be sold at the door. We will livestream this program on YouTube and on Facebook; like our Facebook page to view the video there, or follow us on YouTube.
