The Facilitating Racial Equity Collaborative (FREC), a collective of organizations committed to overcoming racism in Minnesota, will be presenting the 2nd Annual Overcoming Racism Conference in October 2010.

Participants will:
Understand the challenges and benefits to having honest conversations about systemic racism, ongoing colonization, white privilege and white supremacy as manifested in and flowing from historical traumas resulting from the violence of colonialism. Gain practical skills and tools for countering racism and for facilitating difficult conversations about race and racism. Explore the unique challenges, possibilities and practical application of racial justice skills, tools and facilitation in their particular settings.
