About the Conference
Please join us as we create spaces that work to bridge divides and challenge us all to become better allies. This conference is aimed at continuing to honor the contributions and talents of our diverse community and further dismantle systems of oppression.
In an era of racism, sexism, discrimination, and heightened tension across the country, there is a great need to provide dedicated time and space in our own community for dialogue and action towards unity. This conference hopes to bring together diverse groups of individuals from across our campus and the greater community to further understand and explore inequities and biases against marginalized groups and commit to continued action towards dismantling the systems that perpetuate these injustices on both individual and group levels. Systems of oppression have plagued our country and community for centuries. These systems include institutions such as schools, corporations, and our criminal and judicial structures.
