About the Forum & Festival

Each year Local to Global Justice presents the Forum and Festival, an annual event that seeks to connect local diversity, sustainability, social justice, and human rights issues to larger global struggles. This event provides an outstanding space for the sharing of experiences and knowledge between scholars and activists working on a wide range of social justice, human rights and sustainability issues.  All are welcome!

This event is sponsored by ASU, School of Social Transformation, the School for the Future of Innovation in Society, ASU United Student Government and donations, to Local to Global Justice.

Statements

Local to Global Justice acts in solidarity with our communities and deepening our collective rejection of white supremacy, systemic racism and other forms of oppression.

Black Lives Matter

Local to Global Justice acts in solidarity with our communities and deepening our collective rejection of white supremacy, systemic racism and other forms of oppression.

Solidarity

We stand in solidarity with the Multicultural Solidarity Coalition (MSC) at Arizona State, as they organize to ensure that the university upholds their stated commitment to inclusion.

AAPI community

We want to acknowledge the violent loss of 8 lives in Atlanta on March 16, and to reiterate our respect and support for the Asian American Pacific Islander community and Asian immigrants in the US. We mourn but also stand in solidarity with the AAPI community and condemn the use of anti-Asian rhetoric that has spurred the astronomical rise in violence against AAPI communities and individuals across the U.S.  Local to Global Justice will continue striving to build bridges of compassionate understanding and respect across cultures and communities, and to fight white supremacy in all its destructive forms.

Indigenous Land

We acknowledge that ASU sits on the homelands of 22 American Indian tribes that have inhabited this land as sovereign peoples for centuries, including the Akimel O’odham (Pima) and Pee Posh (Maricopa) peoples. I also acknowledge and pay respect to Indigenous elders – past, present, and future – as custodians of this land throughout the generations.
