Peoples Institute For Survival and Beyond

The People’s Institute for Survival and Beyond (PISAB) focuses on understanding what racism is, where it comes from, how it functions, why it persists, and how it can be undone.

‌Its workshops utilize a systemic approach that emphasizes learning from history, developing leadership, maintaining accountability to communities, creating networks, undoing internalized racial oppression, and understanding the role of organizational gate-keeping as a mechanism for perpetuating racism.

Movement 4 Black Lives

The Movement for Black Lives (M4BL) was formed in 2014 to create a space for Black organizations across the country to debate and discuss political conditions and develop shared assessments of what political interventions are necessary in order to achieve key policy, cultural and political wins -- and convene organizational leadership in order to debate and co-create a movement-wide strategy.

‌M4BL is guided by the fundamental idea that we can achieve more together than we can separately.
