Join the Idaho Coalition Against Sexual and Domestic Violence for Compassionate Communities: We Choose All of Us.

 Compassionate Communites: We Choose All of Us is two-day conference on Tuesday, November 28- Wednesday, November 29 at Boise State University, Student Union Building where we will envision a world where everyone is valued, everyone is safe, and everyone can thrive. Together we will create a collaborative space for social services and social change to come together to explore ways to repair the harm from our culture of domination, extraction, and violence, and to re-imagine a world rooted in interdependence, resilience, and regeneration.

This year's conference includes a series of workshops on solutions for social change organized along several thematic tracks such as Belonging to a Beloved Community and Together We Are Stronger. 

The conference will also host numerous plenary and workshop speakers such as activist and writer Adrienne Maree Brown, Author of Emergent Strategy:Shaping Change, Changing Worlds, national speaker on white racial identity and race relations and author of What Does it Mean to Be White? Dr. Robin D'Angelo and Judith LeBlanc, Director with the Native Organizers Alliance and UN representative for the Indiginous Worlds Association. 

Early-bird registration runs through November 14, 2017, after which standard registration fees will take effect. 

Conference registration and more info can be found on the Compassionate Communites event website.
