Facing Race 2007: Define Justice, Make Change

Starting Date: 03-22-2007
Ending Date: 03-24-2007
Address

New York, New York 10003
United States
Description
From the rebuilding of the Gulf Coast to the creation of a new
immigration system, questions of racial justice dominate debates in
academia, government and the media this year and into the future. With
our conference, we hope to unite our movement by building bridges across
issues and communities to amplify the concerns of communities of color
in the intellectual, policy and popular debates that lie ahead.

The conference will open with Keynote speaker Walter Mosley and will be
held in New York City from March 22 - 24, 2007 at the City University of
New York Graduate Center. The conference will have three primary tracks:
policy change, media and organizing.

The two previous conferences, held in Oakland in 2004 and Chicago in
2005, quickly grew to be major gatherings of intellectuals, activists,
journalists and policymakers committed to the movement for racial
justice in the U.S. We are expecting 500-600 people to join us in New
York next spring.
