Lethbridge to host Inclusion Conference 2016

​The Coalition of Municipalities Against Racism and Discrimination (CMARD), in collaboration with community partners and Beyond Your Front Door neighbourhood initiative, is hosting Inclusion Conference 2016: Building Inclusive Neighbourhoods in a Changing World, Oct 2-4, 2016 in Lethbridge .

Lethbridge is a leader in inclusive community work, and during this conference participants will have the opportunity to learn ways to build inclusive neighbourhoods in a changing world.

The Inclusion Conference will provide participants with an opportunity to hear and learn from community, citizen and municipal leaders, community planners and builders, academics and other passionate learners; and to attend learning sessions that will make topics real and personal. They will also hear from inspiring speakers, such as Ahmed Knowmatic on what it is to be a neighbour and Lethbridge's own Tanya Pace-Crosschild, on reconciling as a community.
