Ideas X Action with One World


One World Ideas x Action with Alicia Garza

WHEN: Thursday, June 4, 8 PM EST

In 2014, Alicia Garza wrote a Facebook post that helped create a movement: “Black people. I love you. I love us. Our lives matter. Black lives matter.”

Join Alicia and One World editor-in-chief Chris Jackson for a virtual event on Zoom on Thursday, June 4, at 8PM EST as they discuss the importance of resistance and resilience, and why they ground their work in a vision of collective humanity.

An innovator, strategist, organizer, and cheeseburger enthusiast, Alicia Garza is the Principal at the Black Futures Lab, co-creator of #BlackLivesMatter and the Black Lives Matter Global Network, Strategy & Partnerships Director at the National Domestic Works Association, co-founder at Supermajority, host of the Lady Don’t Take No podcast, and author of the forthcoming book The Purpose of Power (out in October 2020).

We are proud to partner with Color of Change for this event. Color Of Change is the nation’s largest online racial justice organization. It helps people respond effectively to injustice in the world around us. As a national online force driven by 1.7 million members, it moves decision-makers in corporations and government to create a more human and less hostile world for Black people in America.

One World’s mission has always been to find books for readers who want to rethink the past, understand the present, and imagine new futures. Ideas x Action is our virtual conversation series, taking One World’s mission into a new space at this crucial moment.
