About the Event

The goal of Black Citizen is to build community power by investing in emerging leaders who seek to sustain the movement for Black lives by transforming their local communities.

Applications are NOW OPEN for the second cohort of Emerging Leaders in our Change Makers program. This program provides professional leadership coaching, micro-grants up to $10,000, and an opportunity to publish original work and be featured on a YouTube show through a collaboration with LastGenPublishing.

With your help, 6 new community organizers will achieve:

  • better defined social agency
  • increased competency around movement building
  • adoption of tools to collectively challenge oppressive systems
  • and a thought leadership platform to scale their impact through others

(see program details below)


We're bringing folks together to learn more about the program and the organizations behind them.

We're currently seeking:

  • Applicants for Cohort 2
  • Funding for Cohort 2 (all donation sizes are welcomed!)
  • and a network of supporters to help us grow our programs and services over time

We'll be gathering at a bar in Oakland, with more details to be shared soon.

This is a free event, and all donations of $50+ come with a free drink ticket.

Come through!

  • Professional 1:1 weekly leadership coaching through our partner A-Plan Coaching

  • Publishing a cohort-wide e-book showcasing each member’s expertise
