We’re now building partnerships with 2018 sponsors of Free Movement and Black Man Running 5K! Join us in building a culture of health and racial justice.
This is your opportunity to share in the mission, impact, and success of Free Movement Conference 2018 for Social and Racial Justice by becoming a sponsor. Free Movement Conference 2018, which convenes in Wilmington, North Carolina from March 23-25, offers a diverse selection of cash, media, and in-kind sponsorship properties and levels. The event will include the third annual Black Man Running 5K, and offers your organization the opportunity to associate itself with the power of the arts, and with envisioning a community that values health, inclusiveness, and racial justice.
We'll be pleased to provide you with a customized proposal based on your needs as a sponsor. Sponsor Free Movement Week
