Workshops and panels in the Inclusive Democracy track will feature innovative policies, practices, research, and narratives that support governing for racial equity.

In addition to the Inclusive Democracy track, Facing Race workshops will be presented in “Arts, Media, & Culture,” a track focused on narrative shift and culture change to advance racial justice, and “Organizing & Advocacy,” highlighting best practices in building community power for transformational change.

On November 10th, immediately preceding the Facing Race conference, the Government Alliance on Race and Equity (GARE), a joint project of CSI and the Haas Institute, will present a pre-conference convening: “Advancing Racial Equity: the Role of Government.” The convening will feature leaders from all host organizations, the National League of Cities, as well as a panel of elected officials and a closing event with sociopolitical comedian W.
