Last year, many of you were able to join us in Chicago for the most successful membership meeting to date, where more than 320 representatives from 66 jurisdictions came together to swap tactics, gain inspiration, and build momentum for this growing movement to advance racial equity.

This year promises to be even more sensational as GARE moves into its fifth year of building a national network of local government! GAREing Up for Impact will explore how, as this movement comes of age, we demonstrate that the change we believe is critical for our communities is not only possible, but is happening.

The event’s theme is GAREing Up For Impact!, exploring how as our movement comes of age, we are demonstrating that the change we believe is critical for our communities is not only possible, is happening. The event will be designed to support teams representing the breadth of knowledge and skill-level of your jurisdiction.  The event will feature some of the things you’ve loved about past gatherings and some new features incorporated by popular demand:

  • Workshops conceived and delivered by members for members, driving to a national GARE platform. Workshops will be organized by purpose so participants will know clear objectives from each session.
  • Focused time for subject area working groups to share and expand their promising practices.
  • Regional sessions that will support development of regional action plans for 2019-20.
  • Pre-meeting workshops that support new members in orienting to the network, jurisdiction staff seeking to deepen their frame on the fundamentals of advancing racial equity in government, and train-the-trainer opportunities for more experienced bureactivists seeking to expand the commitment of their jurisdiction to this pivotal work.
  • Inspirational plenary speakers that bind the various elements of the meeting together and build a vision for the road forward.
  • A deeper integration of arts and culture into the meeting.
  • Site visit opportunities to understand the emerging racial equity context of our host city.

Pre-meeting workshops will take place on April 16th, General Membership Meeting programing will begin the evening of April 16th and continue on April 17th-18th. Pre-meeting workshops on April 16th will support members joining the network, jurisdiction staff seeking to deepen their frame on the fundamentals of advancing racial equity in government, and provide train-the-trainer opportunities for more experienced bureactivists seeking to expand their skills.

Plan now to organize a team representing the breadth of knowledge and expertise in your jurisdiction.
