“Twenty years ago, those who gathered did so for the dignity of our Black men. Today, we see that the need for justice and equality is far-reaching, and requires systematic and deliberate change for people of many backgrounds. As young leaders across this nation, of different races, faiths, and orientations, are rising up to demand justice, the time is right to convene and call America’s attention to the issues of inequality and injustice for all,” said Mallory and Bryant.
