Untokening Durham Applications Are Open

We are excited to open applications for The Untokening 2019 to be held in the Bull City, Durham, NC on October 5 and 6, 2019.  Our theme this year is Mobility. Safety. Abundance. 

Mobility - To be free to move in all the ways that serve us.

Safety - Not just to be free from harm, but to be nourished.

Abundance - Leaning into our present moment and future to honor our value and brilliance.

This year the conference will span two days for the first time, offering sessions with technical expertise, opportunities to build our networks and movements, and healing practices for those in the work of mobility justice.  Mobility justice demands that "safety" and equitable mobility address not only the construction of our streets but the socioeconomic, cultural, and discriminatory barriers to access and comfort different communities experience within public spaces.

How can you support The Untokening 2019?


Not only are we expanding the time we will be together, we are also inviting our national network to submit proposals for content they’d like to share with participants of The Untokening.  You can submit YOUR ideas HERE.  Our deadline to submit ideas is Friday, August 30, 2019 at 11:59 pm.


This year registration for our two day conference will cost $60 for a community rate and $120 for those connected to an institution.  The institution rate will allow us to provide scholarships for travel or registration to those who work in mobility justice but don’t have the resources as readily available to participate in this professional development. We have reserved a room block at the Unscripted Hotel in downtown Durham. That room block is available for your registrations until September 1, 2019.  We will help participants who need to save costs on lodging by matching them with local hosts who live near the conference’s sessions.

Apply to register HERE! The deadline to apply is Friday, September 27th, 2019 at 11:59 pm. You’ll hear from the local planning team with confirmation of your acceptance and registration details within a week. For those who arrive on October 4th, we will have a welcome reception beginning at 7pm. Programming will end on October 6th at 1pm.
