Activist Brittany Packnett Cunningham on Building a Lasting Movement

At Liberty

In the last month, protests have erupted across the country calling for justice for Black lives, a wholesale restructuring of policing, and a greater racial reckoning across all facets of American society.

It feels like change is in the air. But we’ve been here before: Eric Garner was killed by police in New York City in July 2014, followed weeks later by Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, igniting outrage and protest. Activists then hoped for change too.

We’ve seen countless social justice movements surge in popularity, cause a stir, and then peter out weeks or months later. This time, however, feels different, but how do we actually ensure that it is different?

Activist, educator, and writer, Brittany Packnett Cunningham, who has been on the frontlines of these conversations most prominently since the Ferguson protests, join us to discuss how we sustain movements and compel real change.
