White Privilege Conference Coming Up in Missouri

The Conference on White Privilege serves as a yearly opportunity to examine and explore issues of white privilege, diversity, multicultural education, multicultural leadership, social justice, race/racism, sexual orientation, gender relations, and other systems of privilege/oppression. It provides participants the opportunity to get honest about the type of society in which we live, and the advantages that accrue to some but not others. The conference offers a means to develop and sustain ongoing work to dismantle this system of white privilege, white supremacy, and oppression. The title of this year’s conference is Understanding, Respecting and Connecting. The dates are April 26-29, 2006, University of Missouri, St. Louis, MO. Check out the conference website (www.whiteprivilegeconference.com) for updated information about the keynote speakers, agenda and events for this conference.
