On Thursday, November 17th, CBMA hosted its November membership call, focusing particularly on post-election reflections, and providing a safe and dedicated space to talk about how we’re healing, organizing, and battling the peril before us as we continue to build on the promise within ourselves and our communities. Here was the agenda:

  1. Welcome & Introductions -- Shawn Dove, CEO, CBMA; Janet Dickerson, Sr. Communications Consultant, CBMA
  2. Post-Election Reflections from the Field
  3. Post-Election Analysis – Scott Roberts, Senior Campaign Manager for Criminal Justice, Color of Change

  6. CBMA Updates ("Rumble Young Man, Rumble 6"; Across The Fence; "Blackout Black Friday") -- Janet Dickerson, Sr. Communication Consultant, CBMA


These calls continue to be a key source of information and inspiration for BMA movement leaders and others wanting to stay up-to-date on the breadth of work taking place across the country to improve life outcomes and opportunities for Black men and boys. If you were unable to attend the call, we invite you to listen to it now --click here.
