Registration is now open for the upcoming Peace and Economic Justice Action Conference, which will open with a reception March 15 followed by a day of workshops on March 16.
According to the Peace and Justice Action League of Spokane the conference is designed to help participants gain a deeper understanding of patterns of unequal power relations, locally and globally, and the interconnections of one another's work for change in this moment in history.
The opening reception will be at 6 p.m. March 15 and will feature music and spoken word. Wine and “tasty nosh” will be served.
Then, on March 16, the conference begins with an 8 a.m. meet and greet breakfast. A full list of workshops can be viewed here.
This year's keynote speaker will be Allison Cook from the Story of Stuff project.
All events will be held at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Spokane.
