Yes, BECAUSE is happening this year!
We have a new and improved date! Join us November 10-12 at Metropolitan State University in St. Paul, Minnesota!
Why the date change?
The originally scheduled BECAUSE 2017 dates took place during the very important sacred holidays of Yom Kippur and Ashura. This is a conflict that the communities who celebrate these holidays face all too often, and the same folks are forced to choose over and over between one big part of their identity and another. We could not, in good faith, hold the conference over these holidays. We take full responsibility for this mistake, and we have done all we can to correct it.
We apologize for any inconvenience, and appreciate your flexibility and understanding. If you have any questions or concerns, we encourage you to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
October 1 - 3, 2021
St Paul, MN
We hope you will join us for the BECAUSE Conference as it's never been before: a hybrid event of in-person and online workshops, speakers, and social events. With Zoom producers and experienced programming staff, we are developing a new way of experiencing BECAUSE while keeping all the engagement, support, and community that has been at the core of the conference for the last 29 years.
