Where: Boston College

The Institute for the Study and Promotion of Race and Culture (ISPRC) invites you to join us in celebrating the 20th anniversary of ISPRC and Diversity Challenge. The theme for this year is “Goodbye ‘Isms,’ Hello Future.” Racism, racialized ethnocentricity, and xenophobia have spread their tentacles of oppression in virtually every domain in U.S. society as well as other countries. Over the years, communities of Diversity Challengers have convened to share their scholarship, mental health interventions, educational strategies, social justice community advocacy, or their encouragement to foster our shared efforts to move toward a mutual goal of ending racial and ethnic cultural oppression in whatever forms they occur.  This year, rather than focusing on a specific theme, ISPRC is asking participants not only to imagine a future world without racial-cultural oppression, but also to share their work, thoughts, or presence to make a reality of that which we can imagine.
