Note: This session is full. Please refer to our Convenings schedule to select another offering. 

While many connections will be made informally throughout the event, we have scheduled convenings to provide formal spaces for affinity groups to network and engage in movement building. During these convenings, participants will engage in dialogue that leads to common commitments or coordinated action; connect with leaders in a particular sector or field of interest; and identify challenges, map assets, and develop action plans.
Convenings will tackle key questions confronting different parts of the movement, including: What are the core challenges or needs among your justice stream? What are the assets and connections around the room? What can our organizations bring to this work? What can we do as individuals?”
Please note: for convenings that have two meetings scheduled, participation in the first is strongly encouraged before attending the second.
