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. Kamau Bell, host of the CNN docu-series, United Shades of America. To register, visit http://advancingracialequity.eventbrite.com.
