This year’s conference focuses on culturally inclusive CRE related policies and practices that are being applied at a local level, such as within individual schools, colleges , or universities, and at a more macro level, within countries.

The annual audience includes college/university educators and students, K-12 educators, prevention specialists, and state, local, national and international policy makers.
