DreamWeek, the “12-day summit [hosted in San Antonio and] developed to promote an exchange of ideas on universal issues facing our multicultural communities,” a true beacon of sanity and compassion, continues through next Tuesday. Rich with events of all types, focused on issues of social justice and tolerance, DreamWeek gives you more opportunities to engage than we can possibly enumerate here. However, here are a few standouts we’re looking forward to attending. First, dig Wednesday’s discussion on Mass Incarceration in America (5:30-7pm, Blue Star Brewing Co., 1414 S. Alamo St.), an important and oft-overlooked topic. On Saturday, you can meditate on the joy of diversity through food at the Taste the Dream Gala (6-11pm, Institute of Texas Cultures, 801 E. César E. Chávez Blvd.). Meanwhile, Sunday, a tragically timely expert panel discussion will look at the Intersection of Immigration and Civil Rights (2pm, La Orilla del Rio Ballroom, 203 S. St Mary’s St.). Lastly, on Monday, pat your city on the back for hosting such a swell event at the DreamWeek Freedom Party (6:30-9:30pm, Southwest School of Art, 1201 Navarro St.).
