Hello GEN reader! Medium is hosting a big event tomorrow and we’d love for you to join us. “The Purpose of Power” will be a live Zoom conversation between #BlackLivesMatter co-founder Alicia Garza and Vanessa De Luca, editor-in-chief of ZORA.
The event starts at 4:15 ET/1:15 PT and you can register for free here.
As the architect of one of the most notable civil rights movements of the 21st century, Alicia Garza has forever redefined what it means to organize with impact. In her chat with De Luca, she’ll answer questions about what constitutes a movement and what doesn’t, how to create coalitions around causes even when everyone doesn’t always agree, and the importance of purpose-driven leadership in these turbulent times.
Again, here’s that registration link. We hope to see you there.
