Montana Racial Equity Project 2019 Conference
- Saturday, October 26, 2019 to Sunday, October 27, 2019, at 12:00am
- Hilton Garden Inn
The Montana Racial Equity Project 2019 annual conference will examine the troika of oppression - race, equity, and justice - in Montana. We’ll take a look at its history and current-day effects on individuals, systems, the environment, and policy and practice. An essential part of the conference will be how individuals and organizations can advance and effect positive transformational change – activating anti-racists. This conference has value for everyone, particularly for racial justice and equity activists and environmental activists living and working in the Intermountain West. Sessions will include The History of Racist Ideas in America and Antiracism; the History of Racism in Montana, its current day effects and manifestations; Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women; and Environmental Justice.
Featuring Keynote Speaker, New York Times best-selling author, National Book Award winner, Professor and Founding Director of the Antiracist Research and Policy Center at American University, Dr. Ibram X. Kendi.
