November 8-10, 2023
Convene Fulton Market | 333 North Green Street Chicago, IL
For the fall Legal Impact Network (LIN) convening, LIN members are invited to continue their collaboration at the Shriver Center on Poverty Law’s latest event, the 2023 Racial Justice Forum: Reimagine Justice.
The Racial Justice Forum provides a gathering place for listening and dialogue to deepen our understanding of race and racism in our country. Think of it as a catalyst for encouraging new perspectives, building momentum, and promoting collective action for peace and justice. As advocates and concerned citizens, we are uniquely positioned to reclaim and reframe the narrative around people living in poverty.
Wednesday, November 8
We encourage all participants who are traveling to arrive with enough time to settle into their hotel and prepare for an am amazing few days together!
To kick things off, LIN members will convene for conversations about housing and economic security. We’ll start as a full group and then split into parallel tracks to share strategies, best practices, and ideas to determine how to support the work collectively going forward.
Thursday, November 9: Racial Justice Forum
In partnership with Racial Justice Institute alumni and other advocates, we’ll reflect on how to advance racial justice. Topics will include:
In the evening, to mark the birthday of our founder Sargent Shriver, we’ll host a Celebration and Conversation, a gathering of friends with food, cocktails, and discussion. We’ll also present Igniting Activism for Racial and Economic Justice. This latest installment of the Civil Rights at a Crossroads series is a fireside chat about the civil rights movement of the 1960s and the fight for racial justice today.
Friday, November 10: Legal Impact Network and Racial Justice Institute Alumni Collaboration
Together, we will debrief and collaborate on the next steps in our work. Sessions will conclude at 12 p.m. CST.
