“Fighting Racism and Other Forms of Bias: What’s Working!?”, an Equal Justice Society Mind Science Conference, was held June 22-23, 2018, at the Oakland Marriott City Center.

This conference is made possible through generous grants from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, The Henry L. Hecht Family Fund, The California Wellness Foundation, The California Endowment, and Open Society Foundations.

The W.K. Kellogg Foundation (WKKF), founded in 1930 as an independent, private foundation by breakfast cereal pioneer, Will Keith Kellogg, is among the largest philanthropic foundations in the United States. Guided by the belief that all children should have an equal opportunity to thrive, WKKF works with communities to create conditions for vulnerable children so they can realize their full potential in school, work and life.

The Henry L. Hecht Family Fund was founded in 2011 by Henry Hecht to honor the memory of his parents who taught him the importance of charitable giving by their example. The Fund supports organizations that examine the root causes of inequalities and that address the needs of the socioeconomically disadvantaged.

The conference is funded in part by a grant from The California Wellness Foundation (Cal Wellness). Created in 1992 as a private independent foundation, Cal Wellness’ mission is to improve the health of the people of California by making grants for health promotion, wellness education and disease prevention.
