Harambee: Let’s Pull Together

April 21-23, 2022
Capital Hilton, Washington, D.C.

Allies, co-creators and co-conspirators committed to supporting Black people & communities are invited to join us for #Harambee2022, the largest convening of Black professionals in philanthropy.

Meet us at the mainstage for a series of plenaries focused on timely subjects important to Black communities. In addition, attend a host of curated sessions designed to amplify ABFE’s ten imperatives for the philanthropic sector.

Harambee is a Swahili word that translates to “all pull together” and symbolizes the Kenyan tradition of community empowerment events, fundraisers, and development activities. We are thrilled to come together in-person and to offer an informative virtual experience as well.

The conference will take place April 21st-23rd, with pre-conference activities beginning April 20th, at the Capital Hilton in Washington, DC.
