Niagara Social Justice Forum

Hosted by the Social Justice and Equity Studies Graduate Program at Brock University, the Niagara Social Justice Forum is a day-long program of activities such as concurrent workshops, performances, exhibits and information tables in a fair-like atmosphere.

2018 marks the forum’s 10th Anniversary!

This event typically attracts over 150 people from both campus and the community and explores a wide range of issues. Activities are proposed and organized through an open call to campus and community-based individuals and groups committed to social justice.

The Forum is free and open to the public. Everyone is welcome. A free lunch and childcare are provided with registration.
