Facing Race 2012

The exceptional Applied Research Center (ARC), publisher of Colorlines magazine has announced its next national conference, Facing Race 2012. Here's some information about the conference from their website:

Facing Race is a conference like no other – it is the largest national, multi-racial gathering of leaders, educators, journalists, and activists on racial justice. Baltimore is the perfect setting for Facing Race 2012 because of its deep history in the racial justice movement and continued efforts to curtail institutional and structural racism.

Facing Race 2010 participants benefited from an electrifying keynote address from Melissa Harris-Perry, thought-provoking panels with activists including Van Jones, Maria Theresa Kumar, and Tim Wise, innovative and practical breakout sessions on a range of issues, and the opportunity to network with the most active members of the racial justice movement.

Facing Race 2012 takes place just weeks after the 2012 Presidential Election – so don’t miss this opportunity to be part of the timely discussion on the implications of the election for communities of color. It also marks ARC’s 30th Anniversary so we’re working to make it monumental!

Registration for Facing Race 2012 begins in January but you don’t have to wait. Sign up today to be on the Facing Race 2012 email list and you’ll receive exclusive discounts and information available only to email list members!

We hope to see you in Baltimore for Facing Race 2012!

I also hope to make it to this timely conference and see many readers and/or racial justice educators and activists there.
