Anishinabe Racial Justice Conference--Healing Our Community & Empowering Our People

Date: April 13-15
Place: Niiwin Akeaa Community Center, Keweenaw Bay Indian Community, Baraga
Cost: Free

This conference will offer workshops, presentations, and coalition building on racial justice. We believe in creating a safe and supportive space for Anishinaabe people, all people of color, and allies who support our work.  Native American people have often and historically been left out of discussions on racial justice in the US.  This conference seeks to change this narrative.  We seek to center Anishinaabe and all Native American people in racial justice.
