Liberation in Practice 2022 - Leadership, Power, & Healing
Please join APANO for Liberation in Practice 2022 - Leadership, Power, & Healing. We will be joined by two elected officials to engage in an exploration of leadership within communities of color. We will explore the intersections of identity, leadership, emergent power, responsibility, and healing. Liberation in Practice is an ongoing free public program created for and by communities of color. Liberation in Practice is a BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) only space. Thank you.

Guiding Questions
What is community power? Where does leadership emerge?
How can we foster power and leadership from within BIPOC communities? How can BIPOC leaders harness their power to heal communities of color?
