RACE & DEMOCRACY CONFERENCE
Efforts and movements to address racism throughout history have been sparks and catalysts for all areas of pro-democracy and social justice work. At the same time, structural racism has been a central force to derailing democracy in the U.S. throughout our history. It is time to hold a struggle for racial equality central to any organizing for justice we do as we work towards liberation for all people. This conference focuses on issues facing communities of color; white people addressing racism; bringing a racial justice focus to all our work for democracy; intersections of race, gender, class and sexuality; tactics and strategies for moving towards racial and economic justice; and the work people are doing to make it happen.
The Poor People's Economic Human Rights Campaign is the principle convener of the Race and Democracy Conference. Contact Cheri Honkala at email@example.com for more info.
