The desired Conference Outcomes: Participants will leave with • Analysis: deeper understanding of patterns of unequal power relations, locally and globally, and the interconnections of our work for change in this moment in history.• Skills: greater confidence and sharper skills to take creative and strategic action to shift the balance of power toward economic justice, human rights, and peace.• Relationships: strengthened relationships and networks as building blocks to creating change in our communities, with an emphasis on young activists and regional participation.
