2nd North Puget Sound Conference on Race: Building Inclusive Communities
An opportunity for students, community members, educators and employers to learn about and discuss how rapidly increasing cultural, linguistic and racial diversity is changing our communities and the lives we share in them. Rapid change often challenges our ability to adjust, both as individuals and as members of larger groups, such as schools, churches or business organizations. How does the concept of "race" affect our lives together? How do racism and other forms of prejudice based on culture, language or socio-economic status result in the exclusion of those who are vital to our collective ability to prosper in an increasingly inter-connected and competitive world economy?
The Communities of Color Coalition invites your participation in this event focused on helping our communities and our work places be more inclusive, more productive and healthier places for all of us to live.
Please register by April 13th to assist us in planning for meals and rooms. We cannot guarantee lunch for persons registering after April 13th. ¿Necesita interpretación? Habrá Interpretación en español si es solicita antes del 25 de abril.
