"Inclusivity Conference
Oakland, California

Saturday, October 21, 2017,  9am – 8pm
Sunday, October 22, 2017, 11am – 8pm

The Inclusivity Conference is a gathering of individuals inspired to gather and share wisdom in order to integrate solutions for harm-free(dom) into our daily lives through conversation, co-working, and uplifting community.

The Inclusivity Conference is a call to all who want to work toward and experience liberation in their lifetimes.  And to those of you who already know it in whichever ways you do, and want to share and grow it with others.  Collectively, we know that oppressive systems work to harm us and those we love, and we know that our fight must be taken up by all of us – our mutual support must be radically inclusive. Come learn and share your wisdom in interactive workshops, speaker lectures, and opportunities for creative expression that will remake our world.

Our reason for existence/what we (are) do(ing):

The current social and economic climate in the United States, impacted by the current administration’s policies and priorities, has compelled several vegans of color in a group called the California Vegans of the Global Majority to gather in unity. We gather in unity over the struggles of our migrant, LGBTQIA, and Muslim friends and families who already experience marginalized lives, yet are coming under more threats daily.

We seek to find and create solutions for our vegan and non-vegan communities and organizations. We seek refuge and power in community with each other, and wish to share resources with one another. In sharing these, we take action to defend and educate ourselves as well as our communities about heavy social justice topics like normative whiteness, patriarchy and similarly oppressive systems.

We seek to share what our social justice values are to us and how we choose to lead within our communities.
