*Identity Forums are spaces where people identifying as the identity listed may gather, and by group conscience, discuss issues facing their specific communities and/or provide a specific healing space for one another. Moderators will be present for each Forum. Since we recognize that folks hold more than one identity simultaneously, we have dispersed the Forums throughout the workshop times, instead of a singular time- we recognize there will still be conflicts for attendees, for that we apologize.

**Adviser Track Sessions are an hour and a half long (a half hour longer) than regular workshops or forums. They will also have 20 minute breaks instead of the traditional 10 minute breaks between each session.

***The People of Color Community Space will be an unstructured POC-exclusive space that will be open during any workshop/forum/caucus from 1:00pm on Saturday throughout the rest of the conference for attendees.
