RE-Center invites you to....

...sponsor our second annual Racial Justice Conference, on June 7th, 2024. In hybrid format (with in-person programming hosted at Capitol Community College in Hartford, CT), we intend to reach audiences both locally and regionally to engage with our learning offerings to help individuals and communities understand what it means to live equitably and drive transformative change towards a racially just world. 

We will be offering both in-person and virtual keynotes and workshops, accessible to all participants whether they are in Hartford or attending the conference exclusively online. We will have both resource booths and tables in person and an online hub of resources for sponsors to showcase their work, products, and businesses.
