This report summary from a two-day convening between health practitioners, race theorists, academics, activists, community organizers, and cultural and media strategists aims to spark conversations and mobilize groups and resources to advance racial justice.

Some examples are: How can we disrupt the narratives that perpetuate racism and white privilege? What counter-narratives and stories need to be told to shift cultural consciousness? What kind of alliances, infrastructure, and institutions are necessary?
