ADVANCING JUSTICE

Our annual Convention brings together Americans of all backgrounds to discuss the most pressing challenges facing our country and our communities, with the goal of finding common ground which must include mutual respect, justice and dignity for all Americans regardless of ethnic origin, religious beliefs, or immigration status.

Each year, our speakers examine the roots of challenging issues that lead to the marginalization of vulnerable communities, namely fear, mistrust, and misunderstanding of each other. Our convention is consistently thought-provoking and inspires both community dialogue and action to create the America we are capable of - and the America we are meant to be.
