On the tailwinds of one of our nation’s most critical elections, racial justice activists and leaders from government, arts and culture, and community organizing will gather virtually on November 10-12 for Facing Race, the largest intergenerational and multiracial justice conference in the US. Join us to discuss and shape the ongoing fight for racial justice.

We’re pleased to announce the release of this year’s amazing program which consists of more than 50 sessions and panels, featuring more than 100 prominent activists, artists, educators, and other leaders presenting across four key tracks:

  • Narrative, Arts, and Culture
  • Institutional and Sectoral Change
  • Movement and Community Driven Solutions
  • Racial Identities and Innovation

This year’s keynote address will be delivered by the Rev. Dr. William J. Barber II, president and senior lecturer of Repairers of the Breach and co-chair of the Poor People’s Campaign. Among the other presenters are: Author adrienne maree brown; WNBPA Vice President Layshia Clarendon; Artist Lady Dane Figueroa Edidi; IllumiNative Founder Crystal Echo Hawk; and Artist, Cultural Organizer, Lecturer, and President of The Center for Cultural Power Favianna Rodriguez.

During the three-day conference, attendees will also have the opportunity to check out seven movies and documentaries perfect for use in advancing racial justice work, including Through The Night by Director/Producer Loira Limbal and Stateless (Apátrida) by Director/Producer Michèle Stephenson.
