Annual Conference

The 2016 election highlighted the power of group identity to shape our electoral outcomes; but it also fostered an environment that has challenged us, as a nation, to break down barriers to communication and conversation. How do we create space to have dialogue across the various areas of identity?  What do we make of free speech during a time where certain groups feel vulnerable as a result of national conversations over controversial topics? Are there some groups that don’t deserve to be protected, or who lack political legitimacy? These questions become critical to the preservation and advancement of our democracy as we move forward.

The conference will be held on November 9-11, 2017 in Savannah, GA.
