Register now for the Third Intergenerational Justice Summit!

The Summit is on February 18, 2023, from 12 to 2 p.m. ET / 9 to 11 a.m. PT. This summit, entitled “Interspirituality and Justice for All,” will focus on the intersection of faith-based and non-faith activists and leaders working in Social Justice politics. Come help build communication, trust, and power across all generations, classes, races, genders, and geographical settings.

Created and curated again by younger and older social justice organizers and leaders, the February 18 Third Intergenerational Justice Summit's goals include building and amplifying connections across age, class, race, gender, identity, and geographical lines as we did at our 8/27 and 11/19 Summits-- through music, story, and conversation; embracing our shared vision and values in the form of the “Intergenerational Unity Statement”; and providing strategy-driven training tools and action steps to win Transformative Justice for All.

Endorsement and welcoming comments by U.S. Representative Pramila Jayapal (She, her). When U.S. Rep. Jayapal (WA-07) again welcomes social justice leaders, organizers, and activists to our Zoom-based 3rd Intergenerational Justice Summit, she is not only endorsing our event, but she is also embracing our winning organizing strategy built for this existential moment.

Returning Panelist: Egberto Willies. Egberto (He, him) is a political activist, author, political blogger, radio show host, business owner, software developer, web designer, and mechanical engineer in Kingwood, TX. Egberto is an ardent Progressive who believes tolerance is essential. His favorite phrase is “political involvement should be a requirement for citizenship”. He believes that we must get away from the current policies that reward those who simply move money/capital and produce nothing tangible for our society. If a change in policy does not occur, America will be no different than other oligarchic societies where a small number of billionaires (750 in the U.S., 2668 globally) accumulate massive wealth and control while the vast majority of us are denied access and opportunity.
