Rockford Summit on Racism 

This year, our focus is developing a deeper understanding of experiences within our community, what is currently being done in Rockford to eliminate racism and envisioning a Rockford without racism.

The Rockford Summit on Racism is a gathering of interested community organizations, businesses and concerned individuals engaging in conversations and dialogue about how to promote community unity, cooperation, collaboration, and mutual support in their common efforts to eliminate racism and create inclusion, equity, and justice in the Rockford area.  

At the conference we will:

  • Create a process for organizations to share their efforts to improve our community

  • Identifying specific, achievable ways to focus individual and organizational efforts to become a more inclusive, belonging community

  • Build bonds of unity, solidarity, and a sense of common purpose

  • Utilize the arts and experiential activities to engage participants
