This year is the 4th Annual Students of Color Summit (SOCS) hosted by the MultiCultural Center. SOCS is a two-day statewide conference for students of color and accomplices to explore intersections of identity and oppressions, intracommunal issues, and think critically about our social and moral responsibility.
The year’s theme for Students of Color Summit is POC Utopia(s): Dreams for Hope. We will explore the concept of dreams and hope, looking specifically at who has been granted access to it and who has been excluded from it. In this conference, we will situate dreams and hope as instruments of empowerment. Adrienne Maree Brown argues liberated utopias are only capable of being envisioned when our “imagination is unshackled”.
It is for this purpose to unshackle our imagination that we have created pathways to provide an opportunity to explore in-depth the specific barriers to dreaming as faced by various communities (Asian, Pacific Islander, and Desi American and Southwest Asian and North African (APIDA/SWANA) pathway; Latinx and Indigenous pathway; Black/African American pathway; and Working Towards Solidarity pathway). The pathways will serve as spaces to address intracommunal issues of the past and present in order to collectively dream a liberated future.
