Between June and August this year, NEA is holding virtual engagements as part of NEA’s Season of Justice designed to deepen knowledge, build connections, and create a country that is free, safe, and just for every man, woman, and child.
Core components that make up NEA’s Season of Justice 2021:
- LGBTQ+ Pride Virtual Engagements
- Conference on Racial and Social Justice (CRSJ)
- Human & Civil Rights (HCR) Awards
- Summer Justice Series (SJS)
The impacts of the pandemic and violence against AAPI, Black, brown, and LGBTQ+ communities underscore the need to eradicate institutional racism and systemic injustice. NEA’s Season of Justice provides an opportunity to go deep into the people, places, and policies fighting for communities that are safe and just, healthy, and strong, and governed by the people, for the people.
As the world continues to open up, so must our minds. This is our opportunity to build together a just society where all, regardless of race, place, religion, or country of origin, can thrive. We will not return to business as usual, because business as usual only worked for the wealthy and well connected. It is about rewriting the rules to make this a country where all can prosper.
During NEA’s Season of Justice, we are coming together—Black, brown, AAPI, white, LGBTQ+, Native, and newcomer—toward communities where all can live, learn, and thrive.
