Facing Race: 3/22-3/24/07 NYC

The Facing Race Conference will bring together key policy advocates, academics, researchers, organizers and activists interested in exploring innovative strategies and successful models for changing public policy to produce more racial equity.

The persistence of deep racial disparities in an array of areas—such as education, employment, health care and housing—points to the need for more strategies and new policies to address systemic inequities. From the rebuilding of the Gulf Coast to the creation of a new immigration system, questions of racial justice dominate debates in academia, government and the media this year and into the future. With our conference, we hope to unite our movement by building bridges across issues and communities to amplify the concerns of communities of color in the intellectual, policy and popular debates that lie ahead.
