Proposal Submission Deadline: Tuesday, March 28.
Santa Rosa Junior College (SRJC) and North Bay Organizing Project (NBOP) invite proposals for workshops, presentations, panels, and performances for their first-annual WE THE FUTURE Social Justice Conference, which will be held at SRJC Petaluma on Friday April 28, 2017.
This day-long conference aims to raise consciousness and inspire action, reflected in its inaugural theme, “Get Woke Stay Woke.” For those feeling the call toward political action, the conference offers an opportunity to build solidarity among activists of color, working-class folks, interfaith allies, feminists, members of the LGBTQI community, immigrants and the undocumented, labor organizers, and environmentalists whose diverse work is united by a desire to build a more just, humane world.
We particularly encourage proposals from those interested in organizing beyond rigid us-them binaries and ethnic nationalisms in favor of intersectional approaches that acknowledge the complicated ways overlapping systems of oppression as well as identity—in terms of race, class, gender, sexuality, nationality, religion, ability, etc.—require expansive forms of coalition building.
We very much look forward to your program proposal.
