2020 Virtual Conferences

The Teen Experience: August 7, 2020
General Conference: August 10 - 12, 2020

These explosive gatherings will feature symposiums, general sessions, workshops, extensive group work, and dialogue sessions with some of America’s most notable anti-racism scholars, experts, authors, practitioners, and other preeminent thought leaders. Because anti-racism requires critical examination, thinking and learning, the non-traditional conferences aim to also provide a platform for participants to gather together and explore issues of racism and white supremacy in America and beyond. Registered attendees include educators, innovators, practitioners, business and organizational leaders, and other conscious citizens.

Participants will learn how to bring an anti-racism approach into classrooms, curriculum, business environments, communities, churches, and other areas of daily life.

NART is generously supported by Boston College High School in collaboration with other national partners and sponsors, many of whom also supported White Responsibility, our 2019 inaugural conference.
