BLAC Policy Summit

Please join the Black Appalachian Coalition (BLAC) for its first Policy Summit, a multi-day conversation on uplifting Black voices to create effective, community-centered policy!!

BLAC was launched in June 2021, before Juneteenth weekend. Since then, they have worked to amplify Black voices, dismantle Appalachia’s colonized narrative, and use story-based strategies and solutions that center the voices and lived experience of Black Appalachians.


A crucial part of uplifting Black communities is sound policymaking. Their virtual and free Policy Summit will provide keynote speakers and workshops that will demonstrated the importance of incorporating Black storytelling for effective policymaking.




We hope we will see you there. Please help us spread the word! If you would like to help volunteer for this summit, please email Annie Regan at
