The MCC’s Jackson Social Justice Legacy Scholarship Interns Presents:
REVITALIZING COMMUNITY IN A CHANGING WORLD
9th Annual Social Justice Conference 2022 (SJCON)
February 26th & 27th, 2022
For nearly two years, marginalized communities across the globe have struggled to survive amidst a global pandemic that has exacerbated systems of inequality and oppression. Our relationships with ourselves, our loved ones, and our environment have been fundamentally transformed — the damage inflicted has been heightened by the state's rush to return to the profit-driven status quo. In response, our communities have supported each other through mutual aid efforts that helped many survive.
To honor these responses from the community, this year’s Social Justice Conference theme is Revitalizing Community in a Changing World. The conference will include a series of interactive workshops, activities, and presentations centered around cultivating conscious, collective care.
There is no way to go back to a “normal” we once knew. Now, we’re grappling with questions surrounding how we create new systems of growth and care. How do we embrace change? How can we find joy in such tumultuous times? How can we move forward while uplifting our communities in this new era?
The Jackson Social Justice Legacy Scholarship Interns invite you to RSVP and take part in this community-centered educational space on February 26th and 27th, 2022. SJCON 2022 will be a virtual event hosted on Zoom with closed captioning and ASL interpretation services provided.
