13th Annual (Virtual) Beer Summit on Racism – Jul 28

Posted by Global Citizen on July 13, 2021

The Beer Summit is an annual Global Citizen event marking the anniversary of the 2009 arrest of Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates on his own front porch by Cambridge Police sergeant James Crowley, followed by the Beer Summit hosted at the White House by President Obama. At the same time in 2009 in Philadelphia, Global Citizen organized its first annual Beer Summit for concerned citizens to meet and discuss race relations in our city and throughout America.

This event is part of Global Citizen’s quarterly series of conversations on race, class, and power. Global Citizen is dedicated to promoting social justice, breaking down barriers and building sustainable partnerships through community volunteering, civic responsibility, dialogue and sustained civic engagement among diverse groups. Initiatives include the annual Greater Philadelphia Martin Luther King Day of Service, the largest King Day event in the nation, and year-round volunteering and civic engagement programs.

Date and Time: July 28, 2021, 6:00-7:30 PM
