Third World Liberation Conference will feature multiple panels with speakers and presenters from both Oberlin and the surrounding area, as well as prominent speakers in their field from across the country. The purpose of the conference is for participants to be able to: examine their identity through a power, privilege, and intersectional oppression lens; understand the role of an ally for underrepresented community; and create tangible goals or action items for them to build community or coalitions to fight dominant ideologies (i.e. white supremacy, ableism, capitalistic notion of worth, xenophobia, etc.).
This year’s conference focuses on three program areas: disability justice, immigrant rights, and religious diversity and oppression.
