Each year Local to Global Justice presents the Forum & Festival, a two day annual event that seeks to connect local diversity, sustainability, social justice, and human rights issues to larger global struggles. This event provides an outstanding space for the sharing of experiences and knowledge between scholars and activists working on a wide range of social justice, human rights and sustainability issues.  All are welcome!
