#RaceAnd: Our Present, Our Future


Keynote Speaker

Race Forward is proud to announce climate activist and racial justice advocate Isra Hirsi as the keynote speaker for the "#RaceAnd: Our Present Our Future" Conference taking place on September 25, 2021!

Isra Hirsi is co-founder and co-executive director of the United States Youth Climate Strike, and the daughter of U.S Congresswoman Ilhan Omar. Isra is also a shining example that young people of color are leading the transformation to a better world.



Join us on September 25, 2021 for #RaceAnd: Our Present, Our Future to center the racial justice work of Black & Indigenous youth ages 13-25! The content will be youth focused, but the audience will be ALL AGES. #RaceAnd: Our Present, Our Future will elevate how youth and young adult activists are using organizing, art, cultural, narrative, and policy strategies to strike powerful blows to structural racism in the US and continue the global movement to defend Black Lives. This virtual event is presented by Race Forward and The Funders Collaborative on Youth Organizing.
