NYC Regional Conference

To capitalize on the momentum from the March for Justice, we are planning 6 regional conferences which will take place throughout 2018 and 2019. The first conference will be April 13th -14th in NYC, at the Unitarian Church of All Souls located at 1157 Lexington Avenue, corner of E. 80th Street. We will deepen our relationships with organizers in the different regions of New York State, and the conferences will serve as opportunities for us to shape our collective vision and the specific actions we will take.

March for Justice Reunion

On Sunday, March 25, we are so excited to host a March for Justice reunion at the Brooklyn Museum, as part of the Sackler Center's States of Denial series! States of Denial was the very first public forum that AFJ participated in when we were only a few months old. It is fitting that we will return there to celebrate the March for Justice, discuss the progress we have made since then, and our plans for the future. Everyone is invited to attend, whether you participated in the march or not! Wear your AFJ/March for Justice hats and t-shirts if you have them!
