The WRRC invites you to submit proposals exploring the theme of love as a foundation for liberation and transformation.
The planning committee is looking for workshops that explore topics of 1) self-love, self-care, and self-awareness and 2) community empowerment, community care, and activism.
The WRRC's goal is to center experiences of those with marginalized intersecting socio/political identities, in particular, experiences that center people of color, people with disabilities and those with queer, trans, non-binary, undocumented, identities and/or experiences.
Do you have an idea for a workshop? Please use our goals for the conference as a guideline for the workshop format. However, we will consider any workshop that serves to the purposes of the conference theme.
Please submit workshop proposals by Friday, October 27th by 11:59 PM.
