2022 Theme: Truth Telling for Liberation 

24th Annual Campus/Community Dialogue on Race:

Oct. 24th - 28th, 2022

The Campus & Community Dialogue on Race (CDOR) is an annual event at Cal Poly Humboldt that invites students, staff, faculty, administrators, and community members to present and attend programs that relate to racial justice and its intersections with all forms of oppression and resistance. Our objective is to create spaces and structures for reflection, analysis, dialogue and positive strategies for change. 

Students can earn a unit of credit in Critical Race, Gender, & Sexuality Studies "ES 317- Campus & Community Dialogue on Race". You do not need to be a CRGS student to enroll in this class, we welcome everyone! See below for a list of CDOR events!

Celebrating 24 years of CDOR, this year's Dialogue will run from October 24th (Mon) through October 28th (Fri). The vision of Campus & Community Dialogue on Race is to achieve racial, social, and environmental justice. The program's purpose is to promote and facilitate social and environmental change by engaging a diverse range of individuals, communities, and viewpoints to explore the impact of racism and its intersections with all forms of oppression.
