The Peace and Justice Institute (PJI) is seeking presenters for its annual Conversation on Justice from Monday, January 24 – Thursday, January 27, 2022. Each event, through the power of transformative stories, facilitated dialogue, film and more, delves into critical conversations with the ultimate goal of promoting a culture of peace and mending the fabric of our humanity.
This year Conversation on Justice features a keynote event with Rachel Louise Snyder, an American journalist and author of “No Visible Bruises: What We Don’t Know About Domestic Violence Can Kill Us,” which explores the roots of private violence, its far-reaching consequences and the efforts to address the problem. Additionally, the week features a live theatrical reading of New York playwright Rob Urbinati’s “Rebel Voices,” inspired by Howard Zinn’s “A People’s History of the United States.” The play is a symphony of our nation’s bravest voices, providing a full journey into the struggles that have shaped America from its inception to the present day.
If you’re interested in presenting a workshop during Conversation on Justice, consider submitting a workshop proposal for the week-long conference.
Workshop proposals are due Monday, November 15, 2021. Please note that due to the limited number of workshop slots in the collegewide format, not all workshops may be accepted.
For questions, contact Britney Pierce, implementation coordinator, PJI, at Bpierce14@valenciacollege.edu or (407) 582-6531.
