8th Annual Social Justice Leadership Summit

Equity with Intentionality

In light of the growing concerns regarding the Coronavirus Pandemic and outbreaks around the state, nation and world, the Center for Leadership, Equity and Research (CLEAR) Board has agreed that it is best to postpone the March 20, 2020 “Equity with Intentionality” Social Justice Leadership Summit until further notice.

This years Social Justice Leadership Summit seeks to bring together those individuals and groups interested in taking social justice advocacy efforts to the next level by focusing on “praxis” or “intentional activism.” In Pedagogy of the Oppressed Paulo Freire described praxis as “reflection and action directed at the structures to be transformed.” Please join us as we work together to consider and plan for the implementation of efforts to ensure systems become more equitable.
