Event description

Description

This year we continue to learn from scholars and activists around the world whose insights and stories help illuminate our own dilemmas and possibilities in the U.S. and locally in Chicago. Women’s voices and visions have been particularly inspiring and they have so much to share.

The Social Justice Initiative invites you to join us as we host women social change agents from several dynamic places on the planet and pair them with local scholars, activists and practitioners to ask the question – what are the challenges of building local and global movements for freedom and justice
