This year’s theme, Radical Imaginations, asks participants at the 2019 Local to Global Justice Forum & Festival (February 22-24, 2019) to re-imagine our communities as radically different from our present political, environmental, and economic context. When we use the word "radical," we mean a complete change in the status quo that challenges systemic and structural injustices in relation to power dynamics, traditional (and divisive) political identities, and embodied activism. Imagining these changes is a critical step in creating alternative political identities and goals that will make our world a more equitable and fair place. [ . . . ]
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.

This study examined how organizing an annual social justice forum and festival through involvement in a multi-issue, progressive, activist student organization called Local to Global Justice (LTGJ; www.localtoglobal.org) impacted students’ academic experiences and professional development (e.g., scholar-activism, critical thinking, applied learning), leadership development, and community engagement and activism.
