The Force Awakens 2019: A New Hope is a one-day conference devoted to bringing awareness to equity and social justice issues facing community college faculty and students. Faculty attending the conference on May 18 will have a day of “courageous conversations” and will have the opportunity to create local and statewide action plans that address social justice issues. The event is sponsored by the Community College Association (CCA).

“We urge you to take advantage of this wonderful opportunity to work together as faculty. With strategic planning, goal setting and action, we can bring more equity and justice to our local community colleges,” said Elias Escamilla, chair of CCA’s Faculty Equity and Diversity Committee (FEDC) and event organizer.

The conference will be held May 18 at San Bernardino Valley College. Breakfast and registration start at 9 a.m., and the “courageous conversations” start at 10 a.m. The day is scheduled to be done by 3:30 p.m. Registration is strongly encouraged for planning purposes.
