Candace Avalos and Salomé Chimuku noticed something missing in the coverage and conversations about the Black Lives Matter uprising in Portland: the voices of Black millennials like them. So, with a group of other young Black leaders in Portland, they started the Black Millennial Movement. The group focuses on building community for young Black leaders, and helping them access the resources they need to succeed. Avalos and Chimuku join us.
