Local to Global Justice:

Community Resilience and Action

In Honor of Earth

Thursday, April 22, 5 - 6:30 p.m.

Please join us in celebrating the 20th anniversary of Local to Global Justice! This year has been a challenging one, as a global pandemic unfolded against a backdrop of a nation coming to terms with its history of settler colonialism, racial inequity, environmental trauma, and structural inequality. We’ve also seen an increase in movements for change exceeding anything prior in the history of the United States. The Movement for Black Lives, as well as solidarity for indigenous, women’s, and LGBTQ rights, are growing at unprecedented rates and are remaking many aspects of American society. These intersections of these movements are developing into a cultural and social force with significant generational characteristics. Issues such as alternatives to policing, prison abolition, economic justice, free college, student loan forgiveness, mutual aid, universal basic income and universal healthcare have newly entered the mainstream.

In lieu of our traditional three-day forum and festival, Local to Global Justice is holding a series of three community forums, featuring local and international activists who will educate and share how to be more involved in these movements. This final community forum in this series will focus on Earth Day, and understanding our connections to the Earth and each other.
