The NCCEC Planning Committee would like to invite you to submit a proposal for presentation at the 22nd Annual National Cross-Cultural Counseling and Education Conference for Research, Action, and Change, taking place on February 3-4, 2022.
Since 2002, NCCEC has served as a professional diversity platform for critical interactions and community building around topics of oppression, identity, society, and social action. This past year has witnessed how Black Lives Matter activists from multiple cultures, those fighting for inclusive transgender civil rights, persons standing against the rise of Anti-Asian hate, and other advocates have consistently fought against the persistent and unrelenting social and political unrest in our nation. These individuals have increasingly acted alongside organizations advocating for the dismantling of systemic racism, pro-human rights, and social justice campaigns for all peoples.
In response to this social and political turmoil, this year’s conference theme is “Advancing Social Justice through Systemic Change.” The tensions between this unrest and the activism of those fighting against it continue to reveal the need for mental health providers, educators, higher education professionals, change agents, and students to be equipped with the multicultural knowledge, awareness, skills, and professional development to meet the social justice demands of the 21st century. This theme encourages you to consider how counseling and education can address diversity, equity and inclusion, systemic racism and oppression, trauma and marginalized communities, and networking with community-based organizations, corporations, local governments, and health-care facilities.
The deadline to submit is August 30, 2021.
