Anti-Racism and Ecosocial work are inherently interconnected, with one of the key elements of both practices being a continued commitment to professional development and change centered on reflection, learning, and trying new strategies.

We can't wait to see you in person or on line. All day attendance is FREE (breakfast and lunch provided), but registration is required. Space is limited.
More than 20 presentations/workshops and posters, keynote address, creative activities and opportunities to engage with your community.
