CALL FOR PROPOSALS

For generations, we have been working with a plundered plot, but the moment for our communities to revitalize our soil and harvest the fruits of our labor, as a community, is ahead of us. For that reason, the theme for the 2020 Black and Latino Men's Summit (BLMS) is Unearthing the Root - Cultivating a New World. The theme speaks to the need for Black and Latino men to make visible the foundations of insidious institutions and histories that prevent us from growing and thriving; this is the fertile ground that will allow our communities to learn together and educate one another. Cultivating a new world addresses the need for action, mutual aid, and work that makes use of the knowledge produced by our communities. Our mission is to be equipped with the tools to care for our communities in the present, bring to life the worlds we seek to live in and bring our imagination to action. Upon leaving the summit we hope that the seeds are planted and the necessary tools imparted to disseminate the fruits of our labor to all communities.
