We Rise: Black Lives Still Matter

Thursday 27 May 2021

In light of the one-year anniversary of the Black Lives Matter movement that was propelled into the spotlight due to the untimely passing of George Floyd, the ỌMA Foundation has created an event to answer the reoccurring question, what’s next for the BLM movement? Let’s continue the conversation!

Join the ỌMA Foundation for an inspiring, interactive and informative virtual event to continue the conversation surrounding the Black Lives Matter movement.

We will discuss the significance of the BLM movement and how we can continue the conversation to make positive change within our community. We will also provide resources and tips on how to become active allies and advocates and celebrate Black talent with live performances and interviews from local artists from Reading and Berkshire.

Key takeaways from the event will be:
    • Learn more about the Black Lives Matter movement
    • Be an active ally and advocate and learn how to make a change in your community
    • Live performances from local artists and talent
    • Listen, learn and share experiences.

This event is recommended for 13+ years old. If you are under 18 please ensure you attend this event with your parent/guardian present throughout its entirety. Your parent/ guardian will be responsible for you during the event.
