After taking last year off, the Niagara Social Justice Forum will once again return to Brock University for a full day of workshops, performances and exhibits this Friday, Feb. 1.
The Social Justice and Equity Studies program at Brock will host the sixth installment of the popular one-day community event, which provides an open forum for individuals and groups working for social change in Niagara to connect with one another.
The theme for this year’s forum is Our Own Backyard: A Global-Local Mash-up.
This event is free, accessible and open to everyone, but participants are asked to register in advance.
Programming for the day begins at 9 a.m. in Pond Inlet at the University with an opening plenary featuring Niagara’s own Ohnia:Kara Drummers and Idle No More movement.
The day will then break out into 16 interactive workshops taking place over three concurrent sessions from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
