The People’s Gathering: A Revolution of Consciousness Conference on April 2, 2019

3rd annual The People’s Gathering: A Revolution of Consciousness Conference on APRIL 2, 2019!
Reposted from the Southwestern Washington Synod news.

This one-day conference brings together individuals from local and state governments, business, education, non-profit, and health care sectors to have frank and open conversations about race, equity, and inclusion. Participants in the first two conferences have expressed that its format, high-caliber facilitators, and open, welcoming energy make it a unique personal and professional development opportunity. This year, you can look forward to the fantastic Dr. Kathy Obear as one of our featured speakers.  Synod staff have attended the last two years and learned so much- about ourselves and about the work we need to do!

The full speaker and facilitator list will be announced by the end of 2018. Registration opens January 2, 2019, so start pulling together your group of attendees today!
