Opening Eyes in a Colorblind World: Connecting the Dots Between Shared Oppressions
The 13th Annual Oregon Students of Color Conference will take place Nov. 15-17 at the University of Oregon in Eugene, Oregon.
Take a look at this year’s conference schedule!
The Oregon Students of Color conference is the Northwest’s best student-led educational and networking opportunity for students of color. The conference provides a safe, inclusive, welcoming space for historically marginalized students of color to express their voices and experiences. The conference will provide great networking opportunities with hundreds of students of color and allies from the Pacific Northwest, as well as nearly 100 workshops and caucus spaces presented by students, faculty members, non-profit directors, and other community leaders. Additionally, the conference boasts three amazing keynote speakers and a spoken word performance.
This year’s conference theme, Opening Eyes in a Colorblind World: Connecting the Dots Between Shared Oppressions, highlights the steering committee’s desire to provide participants with skills and critical analysis centered on building solidarity between communities of color and other marginalized groups fighting for social justice. The conference will focus on educating participants about social and political inequalities facing students color, and on establishing ways to continue advocacy and progress. We want to bring participants together as equals towards the common cause of the advancement of students of color socially, economically, politically, and emotionally.
Registration is closed.
