Save the dates for the 10th annual Overcoming Racism Conference
November 2-3, 2018
Metropolitan State University in St. Paul
Registration opens September 1st. Scholarship application open now.
This year’s conference theme is a Call for Resilience, Resistance, and Hope: “Overcoming Racism In Spite of …”
In spite of broken treaties, in spite of redlining, in spite of Rondo, in spite of Philando Castille and Jamar Clark, in spite of anti-immigration laws, in spite of voter suppression efforts, in spite of the school-to-prison pipeline, in spite of rising Islamophobia, in spite of the Dakota Access Pipeline and Enbridge Line 3
You get the picture! It’s a time to celebrate, to rededicate to this work, to elevate our learning and skills, and to network with each other to strengthen our movement.
The Overcoming Racism Conference grew out of the work of ASDIC (Antiracism Dialogue Circles) and Cherokee Park United Church. What started as a community meeting at the church quickly outgrew the space. The conference now meets at Metropolitan State University and draws people from all over the Twin Cities and aims to inspire people to work to overcome racism where they live, work and play, and to provide them with practical tools to do so. The conference draws more than 600 people, and offers keynote speakers, many workshops, and opportunities to network. Conference participants include community activists, educators, government employees, grass roots organizations, and community members who want to learn more. The conference workshops provide them with a wide range of offerings, appealing to both those who are new to antiracism work and want to get involved and those who have been working on these issues for decades.
