Marc Matheson's "Facing Race"


https://facingrace.raceforward.org/

I am asking for your support to attend "Facing Race: A National Conference" presented by Race Forward: The Center for Racial Justice Innovation, in Dallas, Texas on November 13th through 15th.

 

A unique collaborative space for racial justice movement making, Facing Race is the largest multiracial, inter-generational gathering for organizers, educators, creatives and other leaders.

 

In light of multiple events and trends in America, going back to the beginning of the slavery of Africans through the election of President Obama, I feel a calling to participate.

 

The ongoing political divisiveness and governmental stagnation, fueled in large part by forces opposed to Barack's presidency, the militarization of and abuse by local police, and the staggering level of unpunished murders of innocent, unarmed people of color, particularly young African American youth, inspire me to understand, share and organize for a better America.

In addition to highlighting a Southern perspective for attendees, the Facing Race 2014 conference will offer the local community unprecedented access to information and resources on racial equity. Previous Facing Race National Conferences have been held in Baltimore, Berkeley, Chicago, Oakland and New York.

 

Your financial support of my campaign will enable me to attend the conference and to bring home - first, in my heart, being and presence, but equally into our community, locally and universally - the good news that race, an artificial construct and a shared dilemma, can be embraced, appreciated and applied for social good. And ultimately for celebration and transformation!

 

Thank you!!
