“Shifting the Paradigm Back to Humanity” Will Spotlight Common Issues and Collaborative Solutions

Annapolis, MD – February 1, 2018 — The Shifting the Paradigm Back to Humanity conference will center progressive, indigenous speakers from the DC Metro area who will address current issues that affect melanated communities, using their collective experiences as Native American, Latino and African American citizens. Following their presentations will be a panel opportunity with audience participation.

The purpose of this event is to highlight and model the importance of changing the processes and culture of how decisions that affect communities of color are often fragmented, uninformed and contribute to the divisions in our society. By facilitating dialogue and collaboration, collective solutions can be presented and successfully implemented by using the many diverse voices of experience.
