Ends on

We are excited to invite vendors to submit their applications to participate in the Facing Race conference, taking place in St. Louis, MO, from November 20th to 22nd, 2024.

As always, our commitment remains centered on businesses and organizations led by people of color. This year, we are reaffirming our dedication by partnering specifically with vendors whose entities are owned, operated, or serve Black, Indigenous, people of color, and individuals who are trans-identified and/or non-binary.

This year the Facing Race Vendor/Exhibition Hall will be curated in partnership with St. Louis nonprofit Frizzy By Nature. This local business hosts Frizz Fest, a natural beauty festival aimed to encourage self-love and inspire confidence among women. 

Join us in fostering an inclusive and empowering space at Facing Race. We look forward to receiving your applications!
