The Campus & Community Dialogue on Race (CDOR) is an annual event at Humboldt State University 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. This year's Dialogue will run from October 26 (Mon) through October 30 (Fri), 2020.

The vision of Campus & Community Dialogue on Race is to achieve racial, social, and environmental justice. The program's mission 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. In addition, students can earn a unit of credit in ES 480, Campus & Community Dialogue on Race.

This year's theme is Global Justice: Examining the Past and Reimagining the Future.
