More about Black Visions Collective:

Black Visions Collective (BLVC) is a Black-led, Queer and Trans centering organization whose mission is to organize powerful, connected Black communities and dismantle systems of violence. They do this through building strategic campaigns, investing in Black leadership, and engaging in cultural and narrative organizing.

Since 2017, Black Visions Collective has been putting into practice the lessons learned from organizations that came before them in order to shape a political home for Black people across Minnesota. They aim to center their work in healing and transformative justice principles, intentionally develop the organization’s core “DNA” to ensure sustainability, and develop Minnesota’s emerging Black leadership to lead powerful campaigns. By building movements from the ground up with an integrated model, they are creating the conditions for long term success and transformation.

Access notes: Moon Palace Books is wheelchair-accessible and has accessible, gender-neutral bathrooms. There is free parking and it is two blocks from the 21 bus and within a block of the 7 bus. Their cafe serves alcohol. Chairs in the event space are smaller and armless. Please contact track.trachtenberg@gmail.com with questions about potential interpretation for the event.
