William Monroe Trotter Collaborative for Social Justice Spring Convening
May 20 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm PDT
The William Monroe Trotter Collaborative for Social Justice at Harvard Kennedy School will host a social justice conference – “Achieving Our Country: An Academy of Citizen Activism.” This convening is created for activists, advocates, academics, and artists who work at the grassroots level, to teach advocacy skills and create a national coalition of social justice collaborators. This virtual convening, to be held on May 20th and May 21st, will focus on three critical concerns: democracy, criminal legal system transformation, and COVID 19 pandemic resilience. Participants will hear inspiring keynote addresses, dynamic panel discussions, and experience an engaging teaching experience on advocacy.
