Join us at Lesley University for this landmark regional symposium as the national White Privilege Conference brings to New England, for the first time, its acclaimed, robust model of engagement and action. Join frontline New England racial justice activists, academics, and artists as we explore the pressing issues of our time; understand root causes of systemic injustice; build solidarity and community; and develop strategies for dismantling oppression. We will offer programming designed for participants from diverse sectors of the New England area, including high school and college students, K-12 and higher education faculty, grassroots activists, social workers, nonprofit and government employees, artists, members of the spiritual/faith community, among others.
In keeping with the values of the WPC, this symposium will succeed when accessible to a full economic array of participants. Those who pay in full help accommodate others with fewer financial resources. Those who find regular registration rates beyond their capability may attend the full conference at a reduced rate. Please contact Chris Davis at firstname.lastname@example.org.
