Join RE-Center to #AntagonizeInjustice at our second annual Racial Justice Conference (RJC24) in Hartford, CT and VIRTUALLY on June 7, 2024.

#AntagonizeInjustice at RE-Center Race & Equity in Education’s Racial Justice Conference 2024 (RJC24). A particular type of vigilance and coalition building is required in this critical time of continued attacks on equity and racial justice work. Through shared space, we will co-conspire to demand that individuals, districts, and organizations RE-commit to the pledges made in 2020, after the execution of George Floyd, now in 2024. Join us in-person or virtually for an invigorating day with a livestream panel, livestream keynote from Dr. Bettina Love (with book signing to follow), and workshops with virtual options!

More details coming soon
