The Black and White Reunion (BWR), an organization working to end racism, racial profiling, and police brutality, will host its 16th annual Summit Against Racism from 8:00 a.m.-3:00p.m. Saturday, January 24, 2014 at the East Liberty Presbyterian Church (116 S. Highland Avenue).
Held annually on the Saturday after Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, the event has been recognized as a day when everyone – from students to seasoned activists – can come together to start the new year by making or renewing and revitalizing commitments to ending racism in Pittsburgh.
The $25 all-day admission includes continental breakfast, lunch, speakers, films, a commemorative program book, one-year membership in the Black and White Reunion, and several workshops from which to choose. A reduced admission fee of $10 per person is available for students, seniors, groups of five or more, and low-income attendees. A limited number of scholarships are available for those who cannot pay (no one will be turned away for lack of funds!).
