Decolonize Un-Conference Chicago
Time & Location
About the Event
The Decolonize Un-Conference is a space for advocates and activists of the global majority to (un)learn, heal, and cultivate community through acknowledging the personal, local, and national impacts of colonization. Topics vary from city to city, and have included race, anti-blackness, anti-indigeneity, the gender binary, art as activism, relationship to land and animals, food, body image, mental health, navigating academia, language, and spirituality. The un-conference is currently in English only. We are hoping to be able to offer un-conferences in Spanish and other languages in the future.
Only people of the global majority may attend this event. Co-conspirators of equity in white bodies are encouraged to support by volunteering and making a donation/reparation. All ages and experience levels are welcome, and childcare can be provided. We ask that everyone who fills out the registration form do their best to attend the entire event on both Saturday & Sunday from 10 am to 5 pm. This event is free, and we provide free lunch, snacks, and water on both days.
We invite you to sign up to become a speaker at the un-conference. Guides are offered an honorarium for their time, energy, and labor. Please use the registration link above to apply!
