3rd Annual Conference
Get To The Root: Unearthing Oppression and Cultivating Change
Through our theme, “Get to the Root: Unearthing Oppression and Cultivating Change”, we set out to provide networks for accountability and dialogue that promote real life problem solving, in conjunction with local action. We want to delve into the concept of identity, and the many intersections that exist in our lives. We encourage the exploration of self identity, and the power in declaring our self and our purpose in the world before acting on it.
