Black Policy Day - February 15, 2023
Wed, Feb 15 7:00 AM – Thu, Feb 16 3:00 PM EST
Black Policy Day is coming to the Capitol on February 15, 2023.
Black Policy Day was established in 2022 by Crystal Good (Black By God), Katonya Hart (Call to Action for Racial Equality), and Dr. Shanequa Smith (WV Black Voter Impact Initiative) who shared a vision of creating space for historically oppressed and ignored groups to amplify their stories and participate in the policymaking process.
During Black Policy Day, we welcome all to visit the Capitol to engage with our state leaders, discuss the policies that are most impacting Black and minority communities, and learn how to start making an impact in their communities today.
Join us for breakfast at the Cultural Center from 7:15am, followed by a series of activities and speakers related to the Black policy framework. The day will include a breakfast event that reviews the Black Policy Agenda and provides information about current opportunities and resources. The afternoon will include a youth-centered lunch event with accompanying activities. Childcare is available all day.
Throughout the day, there will be opportunities to engage in meetings with lawmakers, space for vendors and tabling opportunities, youth activities, and much more. Some of the events that day will include an option for virtual participation via a live stream
Our first event was highly impactful, check out the highlights here:bviiwv.com/black-policy-day-2022/
