One thought on “

  1. ICOPA 17, was the best experience with history, race, gender, identity and religion and more!
    I am most humbled by the intentional way centering this conference
    around those impacted the most and the grassroots organizations that’s been doing this work forever.
    Having the voices of black and brown folks and the insectionality of our plight as descending people of color.
    The trails and tours were all too, real in spirit and smell.

    Thank you
