In 2007, the General Assembly of the United Nations declared Feb. 20 as the Annual World Day of Social Justice. Join us for a community conversation about the World Day of Social Justice, the history of global social justice endeavors, and the continued barriers that female identifying people — especially female identifying people of color, particularly Black female identifying people — face in America. We’ll also look ahead at practical ways individual citizens can influence public policy and make their voices heard so that women remain a driving force on issues big and small – every single year.
