Marquette to host Justice in Action Conference, Feb. 27
The conference aims to help participants explore their roles in service, community and social change, especially in the context of a Jesuit institution.
For more information about Hamilton and the other conference presenters, visit the 2021 Conference Presenters page.
The conference will focus on three major themes, broken out into separate sessions: justice, action and engagement.
The justice sessions will raise awareness of the historical foundations of marginalization, address how the justice system disenfranchises people at a disproportionate rate and how that impacts society as a whole.
The action sessions will showcase key strategies and skills to counter injustices. The sessions provide a variety of action steps to further education, advocate for community organizations and fight for true justice.
The engagement sessions will inform attendees how nonprofits and other organizations interact with their communities, as well as the role they play in upholding or challenging intersecting issues.
A full schedule is available on the Justice in Action Conference Schedule page.
Registration for the conference is free and available online. Registration closes Wednesday, Feb. 24. Registrants will be provided a link to the virtual conference via email.
