Resilience of Racism Conference
June 1-3, 2017
Oakland, California (venue TBA)

The Equal Justice Society and our allies have used mind science concepts such as implicit bias and racial anxiety to explain and understand racism. Recent political discourse has demonstrated that both explicit racism and structural racism are alive and well. This conference will use mind science to help us understand and ameliorate racism in all its manifestations.

Save the dates (June 1-3, 2017) for this conference. We will share the conference location as soon as that is confirmed.
