2019 Access to Justice Conference Call for Content Proposals
We’re excited to announce that the Access to Justice Board’s Conference Planning Committee is now accepting proposals and ideas for the 2019 Access to Justice Conference. This year’s theme, Amplifying the Power of Community, seeks to shine a spotlight on the our collective power when community members, advocates, judges, attorneys, leaders, funders, and policymakers across Washington State come together to champion justice.
Please share this call for proposals widely with your networks! The Conference Planning Committee is committed to centering the voices of those who are most directly affected by the systems in need of changing. We strongly encourage proposals from a wide variety of perspectives: those who experience injustice; staff and volunteers from social service organizations, government agencies, community-based organizations and coalitions; members and leaders from communities of color; social justice funders; civil legal aid advocates; criminal justice workers; private pro bono and low bono legal professionals; court staff and administrators; members of the judiciary; nonprofit capacity-builders; students and teachers; and many others. Please help us by forwarding this email to your colleagues and networks who share our commitment to equity and justice.
To learn more about the criteria and submit a proposal, please fill out this form by January 4, 2019. If you have any questions or need assistance submitting the form, please contact BonnieS@wsba.org. If necessary, you may request a Word version of the proposal form to fill out and submit by email.
