Each year, YWCA Madison hosts a Racial Justice Summit that brings together community stakeholders to work on eliminating barriers that foster racism in our community. The summit focuses on institutional racism and involves nationally known keynote speakers and researchers, as well as local experts and advocates. This year’s summit will focus on “Reclaiming Our Stories” while last year’s theme was “living our racial justice values: building collective liberation.”
Join us for the 17th annual Racial Justice Summit to explore how we can Reclaim Our Stories to advance racial justice, healing, and reconciliation.
Featured keynotes include Adrienne Keene, Yosimar Reyes, Shakti Butler, Bettina Love, and Reanae McNeal.
Presentations will include a combination of traditional keynotes, spoken word, film, music, and performance art as we explore different mediums that we can use to Reclaim Our Stories.
