facing race conference this weekend

On the heels of a historic presidential election, the Facing Race conference, presented by the Applied Research Center, is happening right now in Oakland. The event is a gathering of people of different races from across the country to discuss a myriad of issues and to outline a vision for the future of racial justice.

Featuring a packed schedule of speakers, panels and workshops, the conference will explore the innovative strategies and successful models that have the power to make the racial justice movement into a reality. Things started last night with words from keynote speaker Sherman Alexie.

If you haven't made plans to attend, this might be short notice, but if you're in the area, it might be a worthwhile experience. To learn more about the Facing Race conference, go here
