Last year at SPARX, we called on participants to act for justice. To transform the moment that was 2020 into a movement. Yet we know that movement building takes time and it takes all of us. That is why for SPARX 2021 we chose to focus on how we can continue to work together and move forward together, in solidarity. As a network and as a region, we have a chance to build an equitable future together. Our challenge is to find ways to build solidarity not only in word, but in action.
Our goal for this year's event is to provide attendees with the vision, community and tools to enact change.
- As a social sector: Create a transformative future in which we embrace intersectionality and the act to shift power for equity.
- As organizations: Permanently move away from pre-pandemic practices that perpetuated the status quo and replace them with trust-based approached that give power to underrepresented voices.
- As individuals: Become anti-racist leaders who are empowered to advocate for ourselves and the people and communities we care about.
Online programming will take place Oct 6/7/8 from 9:00am to 12:00pm daily.
Early bird rates available until September 17, 2021 at 5pm.
