Black to the Future Public Policy Institute
BLACK TO THE FUTURE PUBLIC POLICY INSTITUTE
The Black to the Future Public Policy Institute is a policy advocacy and leadership training fellowship that provides the tools needed to transform Black communities into constituencies that wield independent, Black political power at the municipal, state, and federal level.
The COVID pandemic has made policy advocacy for Black people even more important – the disproportionate health impacts of COVID on Black communities are alarming, and the structural barriers that were present before the crisis that caused economic harm is disproportionate to and exacerbated in black communities. The public policies that historically and contemporarily harm Black communities can and must be challenged during this time.
We will work with Black organizers across the country to advance a just response for Black communities in the face of a health pandemic and economic disaster.
