Access to Justice Conference Agenda On-Line, Time to rally

Our Access to Justice Conference agenda is now on-line. Take a look to see how you can connect with likeminded advocates coming together to reenergize, renew and rally.

“This is go time for the civil legal aid community. The time has come to register and get your hotel rooms,” said conference co-chair Ishbel Dickens. “The planning committee has worked really hard over the last couple of months, taking over thirty proposals and blending them into opportunities to share, learn and interact toward a common purpose.”

Break-out sessions will give you tools and knowledge to take on race equity issues, breakdown institutional silos, and create partnerships.

Our plenary sessions give you Ted Talk-style input and interaction with leaders in our movement. “It’s a world café approach,” said conference coordinator Diana Singleton. “Leaders will share key insights, then a moderator will lead us in table discussions so we can connect those insights to our daily reality. What will emerge are ways to reenergize the movement, set goals and organically build the next wave of leadership.”

All of this is spiced with landing two extraordinary speakers: Congresswoman Pramilia Jayapal on Saturday, and Washington State Solicitor General Noah Purcell on Sunday. In the next couple of weeks, we’ll be sharing more about their leadership and what they’ll bring to the conference. For now, suffice to say they know we’re in the trenches, they’ve got a story to tell, and they’ll leave you more energized then when you came.

Of course, the conference wouldn’t be complete without the informal networking we thrive on. The Justice Joint will have an open space format this year, and there are receptions both Friday and Saturday night.

So register now, then rest up for 48 hours of rocking access to justice.
