The Road Ahead: Strategizing for Justice in a New Political Landscape
February 17, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pmFree
In this new political landscape, many policy changes are afoot which will impact communities such as immigrants, Muslims, people with disabilities, low wage workers, communities of color, and LGBTQ communities. As a community dedicated to equity and justice, it is as urgent as ever to join together to dialogue, coordinate and strategize to protect and stand for justice.
Following the Goldmark Luncheon, the Access to Justice board invites all whose work intersects with the civil, criminal, and juvenile justice systems to gather, align, and strategize. While there are multiple issues and communities we want to mobilize around, we will start off with two issues which are front and center in our country’s dialogue – immigration and healthcare.
Policy experts will give us the lay of the land, what they are preparing for, and what strategies are being developed. Then we’ll break up into small groups based on those and other issues such as the targeting and criminalization of communities of color, fair housing and education to coordinate, plan for alignment and action, and identify how we can best use future convening opportunities like the Access to Justice Conference in June to further our collective efforts.
