Saturday, January 19, 2019, 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

Whatcom Community College, Syre Student Center, 235 W. Kellogg Road, Bellingham

“Remaining Awake Together: Nurturing a Revolution of Values” is the theme for the all-day annual Saturday conference, drawing on principles expressed in Dr. King’s speech “Beyond Vietnam: A Time to Break Silence” at Harlem’s Riverside Church on April 4, 1967 – the values for which he gave his life.

The Peoples’ Keynote, “Let’s Get to the Root of Racial Injustice” will take the form of a conversation that centers the voices and experiences of impacted communities. Skill-building workshops will follow, facilitated by community educators and activists.

The conference is open to all ages, including children. Information tables and complimentary refreshments will be provided. Food vendors will be on site with lunch options for purchase.

Six CEUs (FREE) for Social Workers, Mental Health Counselors and Marriage & Family Therapists/6 Clock Hours available for educators.

Doors open at 9:00 a.m. NO COST.

When you attend the Conference, you can also support the Orca Food Pantry, serving WCC students in need. We will be collecting donations of non-perishable staples, ready-to-eat meals, and new/unused personal care items.
