It offers concrete strategies and policy proposals to reverse racial disparities and move our society towards full equity, inclusion and dignity for all people.
Facing Race is a National Conference sponsored by the Applied Research Center.
This is our moment. Critical Moments Require Critical Mass.
Facing Race is our chance to cut across the color line, claim this moving moment, and gather people of different races from across the country to discuss a myriad of issues and to outline a vision for the future of racial justice.
