In Centering Justice from December to March, we’ll explore how we exit old oppressive systems, and build new ways of being and working together through Just Transition. What is Just Transition? It’s how communities build thriving economies that provide dignified, productive and ecologically sustainable livelihoods; democratic governance and ecological resilience. Together we’ll connect with folks who are building power with, uplifting the voices of those most impacted by unjust systems and creating effective shared community leadership and governance models and practices.

What is Centering Justice?

Centering Justice (CJ) is a virtual space to find and share inspiration for racial justice and liberation. Here, we celebrate people, stories, and ideas to spur community-centered action. We uplift BIPOC leaders who are already dreaming, healing, reflecting, and moving us forward. We address the entangled social justice issues of race, gender, and class. And we offer calls to action that turn us towards systemic change, together.

CJ has a roundtable feel, to honor the cultural traditions of storytelling and listening. As a speaker-collaborator, you'll share your approaches to liberation. We invite you to uplift your values, lived-experiences, and ways of justice-centered change-making. As a participant, you'll witness approaches, experiences, and behaviors that push the status quo. We invite you to stretch and explore new ideas for co-creating a more just society.

CJ is a space to hear, learn, practice, play. It's a space to explore ourselves, our work in nonprofits and social change. And a place to rediscover the skills and wisdom we need to transform into the future we want, together.

In Centering Justice:

We move with possibility and potential - we know what is, but what could be? We hold faith and the belief that the future will be different. What will we do to get us there?

We believe in community-centered leadership - “Nothing about us without us.” We are all leaders among us–how can we identify and uplift the ways we can move differently and together to bring about the change we imagine?

We are both dismantlers and builders - turning away from the “status quo” means actively choosing differently to both break down unjust systems AND turning towards different attitudes, perspectives, and behaviors to create a more just and liberated future.
