YWCA Madison’s 2019 Racial Justice Summit
October 15, 2019 @ 8:30 am - October 16, 2019 @ 4:30 pm
Transforming Our Future
Each year, YWCA Madison hosts a Racial Justice Summit that brings together community stakeholders to work on eliminating barriers that foster racism in our community. The Summit focuses on institutional racism and involves nationally-known keynote speakers and researchers, as well as local experts and advocates. Through an environment that encourages learning from and supporting each other in our common goals, the Summit provides a platform for action planning and community dialogue.
This year’s theme is Transforming Our Future. We invite participants to connect with legacies of resilience, resistance and co-liberation of individuals and communities throughout history as co-inspiration to re-imagine our lives and communities from this present-forward. Keynotes and break-out sessions offered will provide participants the opportunity to connect to this theme.
