This year’s SOCC is April 12-14, 2018. This conference draws over 800 students from community colleges statewide to Yakima every spring. The conference is planned to be a space where students learn, engage, and build community. The hope is not only to inspire, but also to prepare students with the tools to articulate their own stories in order to cultivate personal truths and help create social change. Applications to attend are due by December 8, 2017.

The theme for this year is – RADICAL LOVE: ACTIVISM IGNITED
Workshop topics are guided by the five main conference themes: Identity Development, Awareness of Others, Skills Development, Social Justice and Social Activism, and Personal Development.

The Students of Color Conference is a transformative educational experience!
