Facing Race 2018 will be held at the Cobo Center in Detroit from November 8-10. This will be Race Forward’s ninth Facing Race conference, and the first to be held at a convention center after the record-breaking turnout in Atlanta in 2016. Register Today

Below, we hear from the woman at the helm of Facing Race who is making it all happen: Leslie Grant-Spann. 

“Detroit is home to some of the most visionary organizing in the United States, which made it a clear choice of locale for bringing together advocates from throughout the country to build a multi-racial movement for advancing equity,” said Leslie Grant-Spann, Race Forward’s Conference & Convenings Director. “Facing Race 2018 is an opportunity to lift up authentic narratives about Detroit while amplifying local struggles, solutions, and collective leadership to overcome racially disparate outcomes.”
