We are excited to host our 2nd Annual Racial Justice Roots Convening in person this year! Please join us on Friday, May 20 at Long Beach City College to increase your knowledge and skills for anti-racist practices and connect you with others who want to build unity and solidarity for racial justice.

For the past two years, the California Conference for Equality and Justice has worked with thousands of people online to delve deep into the roots of racial injustice and identify the actions we can take to transform our communities. This year’s event will feature a panel discussion of leaders, workshops, racial affinity spaces, and a fireside chat with notable social justice leaders.
