What does BIPOC mean?

BIPOC stands for Black, Indigenous, and people of color. This is a term specific to the United States.

Who should sign up? Is this just for BIPOC ?

This event is open to everyone regardless of race or background. This event will be highlighting and discussing matters specific to BIPOC communities by BIPOC speakers. However, there is always the intersection of gender, class, sexual orientation etc that is a factor in many of the experiences we will highlight. In fact, a great way to show your support as an ally is to attend and share this event.
