Date & Time: March 22, 2016, 9:00am-4:00pm

The conference aims to grow literacy and explore topics around race and racism through showcasing researchers in the field. A key focus of the conference is to provide a space for courageous conversations about systemic racism and to facilitate the growth of effective anti-racism practices. We acknowledge that these events will be taking place on the occupied, unceded, traditional, and ancestral territory of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) nation.
