Posted by Global Citizen on June 28, 2022

Please join us on Wednesday, July 13, 6-7:30 pm, for Global Citizen’s 14th annual (virtual) Beer Summit Conversation on Racism. This year’s topic is Gun Violence Triggered By White Supremacy: Where Do We Go From Here? 

CLICK HERE to register for the Beer Summit.

This event is part of Global Citizen’s ongoing series of conversations on race, class, and power. 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.

Global Citizen is a non-profit organization founded in 1995 to promote, lead, and advance social and racial justice efforts through ongoing civic engagement and citizen action among diverse groups. Global Citizen programs include the annual Greater Philadelphia Martin Luther King Day of Service, the oldest and largest King Day event in the nation; and the year-round Reading Captains initiative, which protects every child’s right to read in Philadelphia by connecting community volunteers with a citywide movement for early literacy.

The focus of Global Citizen programs include poverty, racial equity, literacy education, service learning, community building, public health, economic opportunity, digital inclusion, the environment, leadership development and civic dialogues.

We hope you will be able to join us on Wednesday, July 13 at 6 pm. Please let us know if you have any questions or need additional information– info@globalcitizen365.org.
