2018 Summit Against Racism
January 20, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
The Summit Against Racism is a flagship event for Pittsburgh organizers. The Summit creates opportunities for attendees to learn, connect, and act on behalf of racial justice.
The 20th Annual Summit Against Racism will be held on January 20, 2018, at the Pittsburgh Theological Seminary in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
Since it’s inception in 1996, the Summit has a played a crucial role in forming the relationships and abilities needed to create a movement for justice. In the face of the Trump administrations unrelenting assault on the lives of people of color, LGBTQ+, immigrants, women, our environment, and even elephants, and our city’s penchant for gentrification, police-violence, and shady courtship of tech companies, now is the time to commit to the aims highlighted in this year’s conference theme: healing trauma, building community, and inspiring action, the struggle continues!
Over the course of the day, the program presents over 40 workshop and presentation sessions, a community resource room with opportunities to network and learn more about ways to plug in with local organizing work, an opening and closing ceremony as well as breakfast and lunch included with your registration fee. The day is designed with the aim of assessing the current needs of our community while developing strategies to combat racism. You can register for the Summit in advance online or when you arrive at the Summit. In order to streamline the registration process and help us be better prepared for your attendance, we strongly encourage pre-registering.
