Race Forward, publisher of Colorlines, is proud to announce: our Facing Race National Conference is coming to the city of Detroit, Michigan, November 8–10, 2018!
From climate justice, to housing and more, Detroit is home to an enduring legacy of movements dedicated to dismantling structural racism. That legacy, and the city’s deep Indigenous and African American roots make it a perfect place for #FacingRace.
In Detroit, we’ll be amplifying the robust strategies undertaken by community leaders, organizers, cultural workers, artists, and city officials who are working to create a vibrant, sustainable future for the city.
At our last Facing Race Conference, more than 2,000 attendees were inspired by a shared sense of resilience, and came away with valuable connections to new resources, people and programs. Registration will open later this year, in November 2017. Be sure to check the Facing Race website for details, and invite your friends and comrades to join our mailing list for future updates.
Save the Date for Facing Race: November 8-10, 2018. We can’t wait to see you in Detroit!
