Black Lives Matter

Project Description

This day-long event is being organized by the Keystone Chapters of The Links, Incorporated in partnership with the Black Male Development Symposium hosted at Arcadia University.  Our nation has been gripped by the seemingly incessant reports of Black and other disenfranchised men and women of color being violently beaten or killed in the name of justice.  Because of this constant barrage, you may be wondering how to effectively deal with these often tragic incidents.  The Symposium will be the beginning of this dialogue and action-oriented movement to make sure Black Lives Matter in the community in which you live.
