The summit encouraged students to understand their own social identities as well as of those around them, acknowledge their own privilege and marginalized identities to become allies for diverse and inclusive spaces, develop a sense of agency and obligation in order to change the “narrative,” and establish a sense of pride and saliency with their own identities.

Tometi shared her own experiences with social justice and how she has changed the narrative.

In addition to being the co-founder of Black Lives Matter, Tometi is also the executive director of the Black Alliance for Just Immigration, an organization that educates and engages African-American and black immigrant communities to organize and advocate for racial, social and economic justice.
