Glenn Foster

Community Organiser | The Freedom Neighborhood | USA

Glenn Foster has been out on the frontlines since the news of George Floyd’s death first became public. He first gained recognition for his work as the founder of The Freedom Neighborhood, which was featured in The New York Times, The Washington Post, and PBS Newshour for their unorthodox methods of protesting and advocating for the removal of a controversial statue at Emancipation Park in Washington D.C.
Since the beginning of the Black Lives Matter movement, Glenn has advocated in planning civil disobedience events with no police involvement, refusal to give in to passive reforms, and doing more than the traditional forms of protest in pursuit of liberation for all Black people and cross-cultural solidarity among other marginalised communities. He currently attends Harvard University and resides in the Washington, D.C., area.
