About the Summit:

Our hope is that this summit will bring unity, understanding and resolve to these systemic issues that are so entrenched within our communities of color both on a local and national platform. To heal and break the mental and physical shackles of systematic oppression, we must start with the barriers closest to us. This begins with the Up From Slavery Initiative –– and with Kitsap County fostering a collective dialogue to prepare now for the solutions of tomorrow.

The Summit will include workshops, panel discussions, networking, and a keynote presenter. You will hear from community members, activists, City government, former Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best, and world renowned speaker, author, and researcher, Dr. Joy Degruy.
