Fostering Inclusion and Anti-RacismPresented by the Chicago Cultural Alliance
The Activating Heritage Conference
Activating Heritage is an annual professional development opportunity for the members of the Chicago Cultural Alliance and cultural heritage students and professionals.
And yes, we are far from polished, far from pristine, but that doesn’t mean we are striving to form a union that is perfect. We are striving to forge our union with purpose. To compose a country committed to all cultures, colors, characters, and conditions of man. And so we lift our gazes not to what stands between us, but what stands before us. We close the divide because we know, to put our future first, we must first put our differences aside.
