12-3 ET, Saturday, August 27, Virtual (Zoom: capacity 1000), Free
Designed and curated by younger and older social justice organizers and leaders, the goals of the Intergenerational Justice Summit include recognizing our challenges and opportunities; creating deeper understanding, trust, and connection across age, race, class, gender/fluidity, lines; and, based on shared vision and values, putting into action the structures and processes for building the intergenerational power to achieve Transformational Justice for All.
Panel Topics: Defining our goals
1. Re-Visioning Social Justice
Across All Generations and Justice Campaigns
2. Intergenerational Strategy-Building to
Win Justice for All
3. Cross-Generational Communications and Relationship Building in a Divided Society
4. Toward an Intergenerational Unity Statement and Dynamic Future
Mission: We are committed to winning Universal Transformative Justice, working across all generations, justice issues, demographic lines, and communications barriers.
Vision: The United States is a fundamentally just and nurturing society, a truly responsible citizen among and between the nations, tribes, and peoples of the world, and is a faithfully dedicated steward of the earth.
Existential Hot-Button Issues: Climate Change and Fascism. We must clearly define, confront, and reverse structural Fascism, i.e., systems of State-Corporatism, White Supremacism, Religious Nationalism, and more. Simultaneously, we need a radical re-think on the strategy for tackling the Climate Change emergency .
Final note: we will have a working list of several prominent speakers and panelists that we’ll be announcing in the coming days and weeks. The faster the registration numbers pick up, the greater the likelihood we will land most, if not all, of the people on our wish-list, and that, in turn, will drive further registration.
