About the Conference

Racial Justice Conference 2012

The Racial Justice Conference is a two-day event to promote dialogue and action around racial justice issues.  This year’s theme is ���Bermuda’s Criminal Justice System: Intent and Impact.”

The Conference goals are to raise awareness as to the intent and impact of our existing criminal justice system; evaluate and discuss what is already being done; look for Bermuda-based ideas and solutions to help improve interagency collaboration; encourage community involvement; understand the root causes and offer solutions to the increasing violence in our community.

The Conference seeks to create a proactive plan for fairness and unity in our communities, policies, politics, the economy and law.  Its aim is to educate and offer concrete strategies, policy proposals and collaboration in its effort to reverse racial disparities and move our society towards a fully inclusive and racially equitable future.

It is important to have unique clarity about the laws we pass, the policies we undertake and the way we do things.   It requires courageous action based on our best thinking and high ideals.

The work of justice is to mend the pain and injustice of the past.�� It is work that demands courage, patience, love and commitment to build a better future for us all.

You are invited to come and be a part of this new future and help create the just and equitable society we all want.
