WSU SJCon presents:
The 3rd Annual Social Justice Conference
Dates: Friday, March 25th and Saturday, March 26th, 2022
Presented virtually with optional in-person opportunities from Washington State University, Pullman

This year’s conference theme, “Re-storying” Social Justice: Constructing Coalition at the Intersections of Theory, Community, Positionality, and Practice, is a response to intersecting concerns about the future of the planet, the future of coalitions, and the future of academic work. The WSU SJCon is an interdisciplinary social justice conference, organized, supported, and sustained by diverse members of the WSU Community and the communities that relate, surround, challenge, and enrich us. As such, we are fundamentally committed to coalitions, to being in relationship with others, including the more-than-human world. And, like many, many others before us, we contend that coalitions are a foundational element of the theories and practices necessary for a more equitable future. We invite participants–which we hope will include folks from communities without, around, and inside of the academy, as well as scholars at any stage of their academic career, including undergraduate students–to consider how equitable, sustainable, and accessible futures are only possible if they are possible for all.

As such, we are pleased to accept proposals for presentations, panels, creative works, and workshops that focus on pragmatic and actionable approaches to “re-storying” social justice, within, around, and beyond the academy. We are particularly interested in presentations related to climate change and ecojustice, the relationships between global and interpersonal health, the practice of decoloniality, intersectional communities, coalitional classrooms, restorative justice, and grassroots activism and organization. If you would like to share your work in a format that we have not listed, please do not hesitate to reach out and let us know – we’d love to work with you.
