More information on the symposium can be found below. 

On November 5, 2020, Catalyst Circle Rock's Kehrein Center for the Arts will stage a dynamic virtual symposium on Racial Reconciliation. The event is being hosted by the Austin Renaissance Council, and the program will be formed by neighborhood groups and individuals with compelling voices on that theme. This event will be live streamed on YouTube and Facebook and moderated by Reesheda Washington. 

The Call for Proposals for the Symposium - as well as sponsorship opportunities - can be found here: Symposium on Racial Reconciliation

Questions for consideration in Symposium presentations: 

  • For whom and for what are you advocating? 
  • Who have been the important voices for you in the area of racial justice? 
  • How do you impact and effect change? 
  • If historical figures like Christopher Columbus and Thomas Jefferson are no longer embraced as those who best represent our country's ideals, which historical figures do?
  • What would our country look like if our actions reflected that all people are created equally? 

Please consider participating, as well as circulating to others whose voices we need to hear today.  The deadline for the Call for Proposals is October 16, 2020. For sponsorship opportunities and further questions, contact Sharon Morgan at This email address is being protected from spambots.
