Rural Justice Summit: Creating a Roadmap for Change

Start:
03/29/19

End:
03/30/19

The Annual Rural Justice Summit is a forum for community members, students, academics, advocates and researchers to come together to explore common challenges, compare barriers faced and seek solutions in California’s vast Central Valley. Entering the fourth year for this annual event, we learned from our first 3 summits that there is a need and a desire to create a space where those of us working for change in rural California can come together. From this yearly meeting our network for rural justice is growing into a movement with a unified voice speaking with authority.

This year, in addition to our annual summit at UC Merced, we will be hosting a community event at the Merced Multicultural Arts Center in downtown Merced.
