Learn from Home: Beyond Statements – How to Use Your Voice for Meaningful Change

August 5 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Sponsor: 3BL Media

In the wake of George Floyd’s death, businesses around the world issued statements of support of Black Lives Matter and racial justice, and against police brutality and systemic racism. These declarations are encouraging, but corporate statements will have little impact if they are not backed up by effective, sustained advocacy calling for a fair and equitable justice system.

Businesses are powerful influencers with enormous platforms. So how can they best use their voice to drive meaningful change in justice systems? How can they maximize their impact?

On August 5 at 12 p.m. ET 3BL Media will join the Responsible Business Initiative for Justice and a few of their corporate partners to address what businesses can do to keep the spotlight and momentum on criminal justice issues, target their support to create tangible impact, and use their influence to advance racial equity.
