Description
Local to Global Justice Teach-in attracts hundreds of participants from all over the Southwest seeking ways to improve their communities and make a difference in the world. Local to Global Justice, a registered ASU student organization that includes faculty, students, and community members, organizes an annual, weekend-long “Teach-in” with invited guest speakers, workshops, musical entertainment, films, creative activities, and food. The entire event is free and open to the public and includes a full line-up of activities for children and teens ages 3-17. Local to Global Justice is committed to addressing local human rights and social justice issues with an understanding of their greater global context. This year’s theme, “Reclaim the Commons,” focuses on regaining democratic control of the spaces and resources, such as public parks and public education that were once shared freely but are increasingly being privatized and commodified. The Teach-in kicks off Feb. 27 at 10am with the “Procession for the Future,” organized by the Backbone Campaign with musical guests the The People's Party. The event also features 36 workshops presented by local and regional grassroots organizations and featured speakers. The Teach-in workshops and events take place Saturday and Sunday, Feb. 28 – March 1, from 8:30 a.m. – 6 p.m. A complete schedule of events, directions and parking information are available online at www.localtoglobal.org.
