Xchanges: The Complexities of Intersections

Hands with diverse skin tones connecting fingers

Racial Advocacy for Inclusion, Solidarity, and Equity (RAISE) is proud to invite you to our first annual conference!

We are focusing on the concept of Intersectionality and how it impacts every part of our lives through a broad array of speakers and workshop facilitators coming from diverse backgrounds in their work and identities. Through conversations, knowledge-sharing, story-telling, and interactive activities, we will explore the different ways that intersectional identities have shaped our life experiences and informed the way we place ourselves in systems and spaces. Go to to find out more!
