The North Star Convention was established by Black leaders and concerned citizens throughout the state of Pennsylvania who have an interest in improving the quality of life for Black citizens, children, and families in our state. The organizers of this event wanted to create an opportunity for Black people to come together to discuss and address issues impacting the Black community and determine solutions for how we solve the systemic problems they’ve faced. This upcoming event was created by a group of Black civic and grassroots leaders, elected officials, business leaders, union leaders, and residents who reside in Pennsylvania (PA).
This event is a nonpartisan activity. Due to the COVID-19 global pandemic and to ensure everyone’s safety, the entire convention will be held virtually. Thanks to our generous sponsors and partners, the event will also be free to all participants. The only requirement for participation is that individuals register.
