Due to conflicts with several other conferences during the week of May 4, we've decided with the guidance of friends and advisors to postpone the "Becoming an Antiracist & Multicultural Faith Community" Conference to later in the year. We're hoping to get it off the ground in the fall, but depending on circumstances it may happen at the beginning of next year. We expect to convene a larger, more diverse group of speakers and participants with this postponement. There will likely be other changes to come, but the theme of the conference and its overarching goals will remain the same.
We hope you can join us later in the year and will release the new date in the coming months. Please let us know if you'd like to be involved in the organization or planning of the larger conference we envision.
