This year’s conference is SOLD OUT. Live-streaming of Friday & Saturday morning’s keynotes & plenary activities will be available for FREE at https://www.youtube.com/c/MetropolitanStateLive/live

We are excited by the strong enthusiasm for the Overcoming Racism Conference.  In order to accommodate as many people as possible we have made two different options for hearing the morning keynote presentations.  You may either join us in the auditorium with the presenters or you may have a seat in an alternate space at Metro where we will provide a live stream.  The auditorium space is limited to 300 people so if you prefer this option, make sure you arrive early because it will fill up.

Registration rates:

  • Early Bird (through Sept 24) both days: $180
  • Early Bird (through Sept 24) single day: $126
  • Full Price both days: $225
  • Full Price single day: $152

  • Indigenous/native people are never asked to pay to attend the conference (though we do ask that you register using the Indigenous ticket type on the event registration.) No space is available any longer.
  • Volunteers attend the conference for free. To sign up, use the Volunteer ticket type on the event registration. All the volunteer slots have been filled.
  • Partial need-based scholarships are available. Scholarship applications must be submitted and approved before registering – Scholarships are no longer available

Registration can be paid by credit card, Paypal, or check, or an invoice can be requested for payment by check. This conference generally sells out fast – so be prepared to register early. Here is the information needed for each person registering:
