More about VEMA & their events

VEMA was founded in the spring of 2020 following the murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Seraphia Gravelle (Aguallo), Elizabeth Robinson (Allen), and Nathaniel Coward began the work of educating the community and providing a voice for people of color throughout the region. Historically there has been a lack of representation as well as complaints and concerns falling on the deaf ears of the leaders of the regional community.
