Racial Justice Summit Resources

On October 3 and 4, 2017, more than 835 people filled the Monona Terrace Concourse to talk about living our racial justice values: Building Collective Liberation, especially relevant in these challenging and changing times. Dynamic speakers challenged us to think about strategies that can be used individually, at work, and in our communities to work together on a vision of the future in which everyone belongs. We are pleased to provide the following resources to support you in the continued work of Living Our Racial Justice Values towards Building Collective Liberation. Save the Dates! The 2018 Racial Justice Summit will be held at the Monona Terrace, please check back for the actual dates.
