Building One America's 5th National Summit for Inclusive Communities 

and Sustainable Regions

Friday, July 21 at 9AM to 4PM, 2017

Rutgers Campus Center
326 Penn St.
Camden, NJ 08102

BOA has held a National Summit every two years in Washington, DC with participation from members of Congress, White House officials, national policy experts, and hundreds of local leaders from elected office, civil rights, labor and the faith community.

The Summits have focused on policies to promote and support sustainable racial and economic inclusion in housing, schools, and jobs as well as the politics and practice of building middle class, multi-racial coalitions to advance and defend those policies.

BOA's next national Summit on July 21, 2017 will be deliberately focused not only on the policies but the power needed to break through on the critical issues of social inclusion and middle class expansion.

The presidential elections will be behind us after a chaotic political year in which rising income inequality and issues of race will have been front, center, and just below the surface. BOA proposes to leverage these powerful political and economic themes and engage some of the most important people’s institutions in our country including labor, faith, civil rights, and local government from key regions around the country to continue building a broad-based, multi-racial people's movement aimed at building power, advancing a new and unifying civil rights narrative and taking action around critical issue to combat economic inequality, racial segregation and promote inclusive communities and middle-class prosperity.

The Building One America Summit will involve local leaders and federal and state policy makers to seek bipartisan solutions to the unique but common challenges around housing, schools and infrastructure facing America’s metropolitan regions and its diverse middle-class communities. Participants will include local elected and grassroots leaders from America’s diverse middle class towns and school districts along with scholars, policy experts, state legislators, members of Congress and the White House.
