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.

John Winthrop, a founder of the Massachusetts Bay colony considered this wave of illness and death [among Natives] to be a divine miracle. He wrote to a friend in England, "But for the natives in these parts, God hath so pursued them, as for 300 miles space the greatest part of them are swept away by smallpox which still continues among them. So as God hath thereby cleared our title to this place, those who remain in these parts, being in all not 50, have put themselves under our protection.
