On March 14, 2018, the Des Moines Civil and Human Rights Commission will hold its 32nd Annual Des Moines Civil and Human Rights Symposium entitled The Blueprint to Building Community.

The theme highlights the symposium goal of uniting residents across the Des Moines Metropolitan area for the greater good of our community. We believe that the blueprint to building community is eliminating systemic racism, being truly inclusive, alleviating poverty, improving economic conditions for everyone, having just laws, and getting to know your neighbor. We have organized five symposium tracks based on that belief: Eliminating Racism, Inclusion, Poverty & Economics, Law & Justice, and Know Thy Neighbor.

Through our interactive workshop presentations, we hope to enlighten attendees about what we can do to come together to improve our communities and workplaces.

The education received by attendees will be able to count toward Continued Legal Education (legal), Human Resources Continued Education Credits, and Continued Education Units (Social Workers & Realtors).
