For interested individuals at UWL and throughout the La Crosse community, there will be two options to attend one of the planning meetings to learn about and discuss the process to attend the 20th Annual National White Privilege Conference in Cedar Rapids, Iowa scheduled for Thursday – Saturday, March 21st – 23rd 2019. If organizations collaborate, the more going from an organization, the greater possibility for discounted rates. Even if you and associates don’t receive a meeting invite, please feel free to attend or send someone to one of two meetings indicated below.
Wednesday, December 12th 2019, 1 – 2pm in 2200 Centennial Hall located on the UW-La Crosse Campus
Thursday, December 13th 2019, 3 – 4pm in 3100 Centennial Hall located on the UW-La Crosse Campus
In addition, there are initial plans happening in the La Crosse Community to organize a community/regional book read using Waking Up White written by Debby Irving that will propel possibly hosting a White Privilege Symposium in La Crosse, most likely during the 2020 Fall Semester. Also at these two meetings, there will be an update about these as well.
