Welcome to the home page for Facing Race 2013! Facing Race is an annual conference at UC Santa Barbara that seeks to confront some of the most critical issues facing people of color and other underrepresented communities today. This year, our theme is “Against the Gun: Deconstructing Narratives of Violence in Communities of Color”. The 14th Annual Facing Race Conference will be held Saturday, February 23, 2013 from 11:00 am to 6:30 pm.
The conference is open to all students, allies, staff, faculty, and community members. Through workshops, lectures, keynote speakers, and other special programming we hope to educate and empower all who participate to create social change.
