United StatesThe Advancing Justice Conference is a national civil rights and social justice conference that aims to bring together a diverse group of stakeholders in one place to address a broad range of issues facing the Asian American and Pacific Islander community. It serves as a unique forum where researchers, advocates, direct service providers and other leaders can meet face-to-face, talk about their common challenges and find ways to work collaboratively.
Planned highlights include:
- Legislative briefing with members of Congress, key policy makers, and advocates to discuss critical legislative priorities of importance to the Asian American community
- Annual Pearl Gala event
- Young leaders program
Also the 2010 conference will coincide with the Smithsonian Folk Life Festival featuring Asian American and Pacific Islanders, which will give conference attendees an opportunity to participate in many activities related to the festival.
The Advancing Justice Conference is a joint project by the Asian American Institute (Chicago), Asian American Justice Center (Washington, D.C.), Asian Law Caucus (San Francisco) and Asian Pacific American Legal Center (Los Angeles).
