This Fall, we are pleased to present SPARK CHANGE FOR JUSTICE, a series of virtual conversations with Brooklyn leaders exploring how, working together, we can achieve racial, social, and economic justice for all.

Please join us for the first of this multipart series, Spark Change: Power, Not Politics on Wednesday, September 30th at 9am with Brooklyn Congressman Hakeem Jeffries (NY-8) and CNN and MSNBC Political Commentator, Strategist, and Brooklyn Community Foundation Board member Aisha C. Mills

COVID-19’s disproportionate health, economic, and social impacts on communities of color have made one thing clear: political representation matters more than ever in moments of crisis. Congressman Jeffries and Aisha Mills will discuss the 2020 election and Black political leadership, as well as answer your questions on how to win lasting structural change.
