Summer Justice Forum

Past Event

6:00 PM ET

Join the Vera Institute of Justice and Graduate Students of Color for Justice Initiative for our second annual Summer Justice Forum.

Young people and students are on the frontlines of the recent national uprisings, radically shifting the conversation on racial equity and demanding a new vision for achieving justice. This event will bring together graduate students and young professionals for a conversation with leading advocates to understand this moment’s meaning for the larger justice movement and for their own lives and careers.
