21st Annual Local to Global Justice Forum and Festival

Friday, February 25 - Saturday, February 26, 2022

Educating for Justice


We are excited to be returning in-person for the 21st Annual Local to Global Justice Forum and Festival! Please note that everyone’s safety is our top priority. We recognize that we are still in a global pandemic, and we therefore ask participants to contribute to extra safety measures to reduce the risk of transmitting COVID-19 and offer a hybrid format to accommodate those who are unable to join in-person or are joining us from afar.

For 2022, Local to Global Justice is organizing our 21st Forum and Festival, focused on the theme of “Educating for Justice.” We continue to live in a world that is starkly divided by political affiliation and inequities in education, access to resources, healthcare, and political rights. The COVID-19 pandemic has further exacerbated many inequalities and highlighted the need for collective action to address racial, environmental, and other injustices. In these times, the roles of education, formal, informal, and community-focused in the quest for justice on multiple issues has never been so clear.

When & Where

Friday, February, 25, 2022, at the Phoenix Hostel and Cultural Center for our traditional opening night festivities

Saturday, February 26, 2022 at Arizona State University, Tempe campus for the Forum and Festival

Proposed presentations and workshops will be on Saturday, 2/26 from 9:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.

Keynote panel after lunch (catered by Green, New American Vegetarian).


This year, we are accepting proposals to be part of a very limited number of morning panels that will showcase a variety of perspectives and methods related to educating for justice. Each panelist will have ten (10) minutes to present on their topic, and there will be a twenty (20) minute discussion following all panelist presentations. We will also have the opportunity for community groups to table, provide skill shares and network, as always.

We seek proposals from individuals, organizations, and community groups that respond to the following questions:

  • What is education? Who does it serve, and who gets to shape educational values?
  • What are examples of different ways of considering and organizing for actions that help create fundamental changes in education?
  • How do we foster justice and inclusion within education?
  • How do we educate for self-care to address the mental, spiritual, emotional, and physical health of our communities?
