Parlay — An Urban Think Tank ON Civic Engagement

The Parlay conversation series officially launched on Friday, December 11th, 2015. What started off as a dream, has been brought to fruition in a cosmically magical way, with the generous partnership of several entities and in concert with the energy and expertise garnered by our first round of panelists. We are infinitely thankful for the overwhelming support and confidence in this venture, and are tremendously excited for the Parlays to come. Parlay is only as strong as we are, so don't forget to join our mailing list below to make sure you're in the loop.


Every month, Parlay's topic will stay the same: A conversation about leveraging Black capital and social influence, from the millennial perspective. However, since our goal is to offer a diverse set of opinions into the discourse, the contributors and panelists will rotate each month. As Parlay grows, attendance at the convenings will be comprised of individuals across industries who are advocates of, and poised to support & promote the subject matter from their own positions of influence. In addition to bearing witness to the ideas shared from the panelists, the audience is a vital participant in the tangible outcomes of each Parlay, as we are infusing real-time engagement via social media and audience participation to enhance the collective experience. Also, in acknowledging how important setting the atmosphere for substantive, progressive conversations like this, we have curated an exclusive soundtrack for Parlay that is available for download above.

We have no doubt that Parlay is going to change the game - and are excited that you're ready to ante up with us!
