EventsSeeking Justice Together Virtual Conference

Monday, May 17, 2021 EDT - Thursday, May 20, 2021 EDT

| $20 – $50

Seeking Justice Together is a virtual conference hosted by Citizens for Public Justice from May 17 to 20 exploring how we are called to seek justice together through intersectional, interpersonal, and interconnected approaches.

Through a variety of keynotes and workshops, participants will explore living examples of what it looks like to seek justice as people connected to one another and to the lands in which we live. We will consider how our identities, histories, systems, and geography shape our experiences of power and privilege, and how this informs the ways in which each of us are called to seek justice together. Speakers and facilitators will address issues of racism, Indigenous/settler reconciliation, 2SLGBTQQIA+ rights, disability rights, poverty in Canada, climate justice, and refugee rights.

Keynotes and workshops will invite participants to consider how Christians, in particular, are called to seek justice alongside others. Participants will be invited to explore the role of theology, church history, and contemporary expressions of faith in our understanding and practice of justice. All participants are welcome, regardless of faith background.

“Coffee-break” discussion groups will allow participants to engage and connect with one another throughout the conference, creating space to chat, network, and process new learning and ideas. During registration, you can choose to meet new people each time you attend a coffee break, or to meet with the same group each time.
