♦ 2020 NW Justice Summit, Part 2, December 4-6, 2020
Member call to action!! It’s time to prepare for Part 2 of JUUstice Washington’s virtual NW Justice Summit “Committing Ourselves to the Great Turning.”
October’s Summit, Part 1 was a huge success, with 114 participants, meaty panel discussions and valuable contributions from attendees. Now that we have the election results and a possible deadlocked congress, our work takes on added urgency.
JUUstice Washington is building upon action ideas presented by our wonderful Summit Part 1 panelists, as well as those arising in breakout discussions. We have compiled a list of action priorities and will facilitate the development of strategies for 2021 in four action areas: Racial Justice, Legislative Advocacy, First American Indian Nations and Refugee, Immigrant and Migrant Solidarity. Let Summit Part 1 information and ideas in your head lead to impactful action from your heart.
If you registered for Part 1, you’re covered. No need to reregister. Registration for Part 2 for new attendees includes access to videos and transcripts from all Part 1 panels, for your review.
