Activist Alicia Garza started a movement that changed how we think about race. One of the pioneers behind the phrase #BlackLivesMatter, Alicia co-founded the Black Lives Matter Network in 2013 and remains a seminal leader in the effort to organize for racial justice.
In her new book, "The Purpose of Power: How We Come Together When We Fall Apart",
Garza relays details and lessons from her life working as a community organizer.
Garza argues for a new outlook in community organizing in which social movements are
more accommodating and understanding of burgeoning activists.
Join her at INFORUM to learn more about what it takes to effectively mobilize people around the issues that matter the most, from climate justice to voter suppression.
