The theme for the Confronting Racism: Building United Movements conference will be “Connecting the dots: racism and issues of global capitalism.” We envision a conference with workshops and action-oriented discussions exposing the interconnectedness of racism with issues of global capitalism affecting us locally...This is an opportunity to examine our common ground within seemingly separate issues and develop a unified voice of resistance against global capitalism and imperialism as we continue building a collective liberation movement in Ohio. We are committed to building an anti-racist, anti-imperialist, multiracial, feminist, queer and trans liberationist, anti-authoritarian movement against global capitalism and promoting the understanding that there are multiple valid approaches to doing this work. Please come and let us hear your voice.
We are now accepting proposals for workshops that speak to our stated theme and that folks in Ohio might find particularly interesting. It is our goal that every workshop will end with a “call to action”
For More information on how to submit proposals and to RSVP please see our website.
