KEWEENAW BAY INDIAN COMMUNITY – Orgarnizers of the Anishinaabe Racial Justice Conference have an announced a Call for Proposals for parties interested in presenting at its inaugural conference taking place in the Keweenaw Bay Indian Community on April 14 -15, 2018.

The theme of this first conference is “Healing Our Communites & Empowering Our People.”

WHO: Great Lakes Anishinaabe, People of Color, and Allies

WHAT: This conference will offer workshops, presentations, and coalition building on racial justice.  We are working in collaboration with the following organizations: Michigan Roundtable for Diversity and Inclusion, Red Circle Consulting, Native Justice Coalition, Northern Michigan University – Center for Native American Studies, Michigan Technological University, Showing Up For Racial Justice – Keweenaw Chapter, and the Keweenaw Bay Indian Community.

WHERE: Keweenaw Bay Indian Community

WHEN: April 14th (Saturday) & 15th (Sunday) 2018

WHY: Organizers 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.
