4th Annual Paving The Way Conference

  • Medgar Evers College 1650 Bedford Avenue Brooklyn, NY, 11225 United States (map)

In April, Common Justice will co-sponsor their 4th annual Paving the Way conference that will focus on mutual healing among young men of color and their communities. 

Friday, April 20, 2018 (exact time TBD)
Medgar Evers College
1650 Bedford Avenue
Brooklyn, NY 11225

The 2018 conference will focus on "channeling resilience" for young men of color and their communities who have been harmed by violence. This exploration of promising practices will lift up the experience not only of some of the larger nonprofits working in this area, but equally, the voices of grassroots organizations, experienced practitioners, and crucially, the young men themselves. 

To register for the conference, CLICK HERE.

The conference will have a number of break-out sessions that will encourage in-depth discussions between presenters and participants. Presenters are encouraged to lead dynamic conversations and build on the wisdom of the participants. They are especially interested in authentic dialogue that includes the lens of race, racism, gender identity, sexual orientation, culture, and class.

The deadline to submit presentation proposals is Friday, March 2.
