NW Justice Summit 2020
JUUstice Washington’s board & staff are delighted to announce the 2020 NW Justice Summit.
New format, exciting speakers, post-election organizing.
Don’t miss this chance to connect with like-minded activists and would-be activists!
Our 2020 Justice Summit is right around the corner! We’ll meet via Zoom on October 9th and 10th for the Panel Program and again, December 4th – 6th for the Strategy Session. We’re employing a virtual format with national speakers, opportunities to network, increased accessibility and an expanded action component. Best of all, you’ll have access to every session. We’ll hear perspectives about core issues in October and then return after the election to craft actions in response to the outcome.
October 9th will be a panel centering on Indigenous issues. Racial justice, Environmental justice, RIMS (Refugee, Immigrant and Migrant Solidarity), and Legislative Advocacy will be the focus of a sequence of panel sessions on October 10th. Dive deeper into our Summit pages to learn about the full program and the panelists.
During December 4th through 6th sessions, participants will take the information gathered during the October Panels and the November election results, and begin strategizing actions for the rest of the 2021 and beyond.
The online format allows you to attend all of the sessions or just those of greatest interest to you. Follow us on Facebook for rapid updates.
