Mixed race is the fastest growing youth ID in the United States. Yet despite being a major presence in the US, multiracial people continue to experience oppression, racism, and marginalization in different ways. The Mixed Race Seattle Conference is a transformative day of storytelling, art, and creative expression meant to grow community among multiracial teens, young adults, and their families. It is a non-religious, anti-racist event that centers Black, Brown, and Indigenous multiracial peoples and is being held as an act of liberation and decolonization.
Morning activities include an opening welcome address, a workshop for parents of Mixed kids, and a youth-led workshop for teens and college-age students. The afternoon will feature a panel discussion of Mixed Race young adults. The day will conclude with a panel discussion of multiracial and multicultural artists, and performances will be offered throughout the day (presenter and performer bios below).
You can attend the entire day, or drop in for specific events. Light breakfast, snacks and water will be provided. Parking is available in the lot in front of the building. The site is ADA-accessible, and the event is barrier-free: if you require special accommodations, including translation and ASL services, please contact us at least two weeks in advance on the RSVP form. *IMPORTANT* Don’t forget to RSVP as space is limited (link above). For questions, comments, or to volunteer: email@example.com.
The Mixed Race Seattle Conference is being co-hosted by Seattle JACL, the flagship chapter of the nations’ second oldest Asian American civil rights organization, and sponsored by Families of Color Seattle (FOCS), a local family support nonprofit led by mothers of color, and is made possible through a 2020 Legacy Grant from JACL National and a smART Ventures Grant from The Seattle Office of Arts & Culture.
