SAVE THE DATE - SATURDAY MAY 12TH @ 9AM to join the 67 Sueños family at Lake Merritt for our annual HELLA UndocuRUN! 

REGISTER

Whether you run, walk, roll or stroll, it doesn't matter, come and spend your morning in community to raise the issues that affect each of our lives. Our event stands as a show of resistance, a reminder of our people power, and a commitment to find a way to challenge our representatives and leaders. 

During his presidency, Trump ended DACA, rescinded TPS for Nicaraguans, Haitians, Hondurans, and Salvadorans, implemented a travel ban, and rallied against refugees. The reality is that this didn't begin with Trump. This comes after centuries of colonization, genocide, displacement, and constant harrassment of our people.

Together let's reclaim our sacred space and continue our legacy of resistance and ally support for all of our undocumented, black, Muslim, wombyn, and queer brothers and sisters who have been victimized, brutalized, and criminalized.

We honor everyone who has been separated from their loved ones; we call for policy shifts and awareness of vulnerable migrant groups; we demand migrant justice and NO MORE WALLS. Bring the issues that you are passionate about and lift them up with us.

By joining the run, you are supporting the leadership of the 67 Sueños youth and the future they will help create. Our leaders are undocumented or come from mixed-status families. Now more than ever we must hear and follow the direction of our impacted youth. 

ABSOLUTELY EVERYONE IS WELCOME AND INVITED, including your furry best friend!

All funding supports 67 Sueños in its ongoing work to train and empower youth leaders from our San Francisco and Oakland high school students.

Individual: $25 // Team of 10 runners: $100

Greenlining's 25th Annual Economic Summit

Screen Shot 2018-02-26 at 8.33.23 PM.png

Justice Rising: Our History. Our Future.
Featuring Dolores Huerta, Melissa Harris-Perry, Alicia Garza, and Senator Kevin de León

Every year, the Economic Summit brings together a diverse array of leaders to connect, brainstorm, celebrate and strategize on important economic issues affecting communities of color.

From climate change, healthcare, leadership development, art and activism, to grassroots organizing and more — this unique gathering “connects the dots” in a way that’s unlike any other meeting or conference we know of.

In these turbulent times, our 2018 Economic Summit marks The Greenlining Institute’s 25th anniversary – drawing strength from two and a half decades of racial justice advocacy, honoring those who came before us, and looking ahead to a more equitable future. Leaders of color from across the country will take the stage to look beyond today’s challenges and explore a future with racial equity in all policies.

We invite you to join nearly 1000 advocates, activists, artists, students, scholars and leaders from across professional sectors for a day of connection, mobilization, and inspiring conversation.
