Time & Location
About The Event
We as a people are challenged on many levels by the COVID-19 pandemic which has been triggered during one of the most consequential election years this generation has experienced. Social distancing and isolation are required to slow its spread, however, MOVEMENT is the vehicle for mass participation.
We are witnessing resilience, selflessness, and generosity. People are making shifts to adapt to the growing yet, uncertain change this pandemic brings while participating in virtual events, working remotely and providing relief efforts with major shortages and limited access to resources.
How do we continue to advance the goals the Criminal Justice Movement in the midst of a global crisis? What are some of the ways in which we can identify and prioritize the various kinds of support organizations may need and remain steadfast and sustainable? Join CJI grantees, activists and partners across the country as they share their insights and discuss the innovative approaches they've taken to advance their work during this state of emergency.
