Forum & Festival

Forum and Festival Overview

Promoting diversity, freedom of speech, and academic freedom of discussion.

The Local to Global Justice Forum and Festival is a gathering for sharing knowledge that doesn’t rely entirely on “experts.” At this annual event, we recognize that everyone has something to teach and something to learn. Similar to the Social Forums that have been held around the world, this L2GJ event feels more like a festival than a conference.

Since 2001 our primary goal has been to educate ASU students and the greater community about local and global justice, while promoting diversity, freedom of speech, and academic freedom of discussion. We believe it is vital to connect local diversity, sustainability, and social justice issues to larger global struggles.

The Forum and Festival is absolutely FREE of charge. While we certainly appreciate donations, we are dedicated to providing free speakers, food, workshops and entertainment.

Thank you to everyone who attended our 22nd Annual Forum and Festival: Energizing Justice. And a special thanks to all our speakers and performers, this even wouldn’t exist without the work you do. Thank you and we look forward to putting together the next forum and festival!
