Advancing Justice Conference

Register for the Inaugural Advancing Justice Conference

October 29-30, 2009
The Center at Cathedral Plaza – Los Angeles, CA

The Advancing Justice Conference is an inaugural national civil rights and social justice conference, expected to draw several hundred individuals from across the country.  The conference aims to bring together a diverse group of stakeholders in one place to address a broad range of issues facing the Asian American and Pacific Islander community.  It serves as a unique forum where researchers, advocates, direct service providers and other leaders can meet face-to-face, talk about their common challenges and find ways to work collaboratively.

The featured conference plenary sessions will address the:

  • landscape for comprehensive immigration reform: understanding the political, organizing, faith and labor angles
  • latest research on the attitudes and political views and participation of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders

Early bird registration ends September 15, 2009.

Speakers include national and local leaders, policy researchers, legal advocates, direct service providers, students and others dynamically engaged in leadership and social justice work throughout the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community.

Learn more about workshops, speakers, registration and travel information on the conference Web site. A limited number of travel stipends are available to conference participants. Application is also available online.

The Advancing Justice Conference is a joint project by the Asian American Institute (Chicago), Asian American Justice Center (Washington, D.C.), Asian Law Caucus (San Francisco), and Asian Pacific American Legal Center (Los Angeles).
