What is the Justice in Action Conference?
JIA is a one-day student focused conference to explore your role in service, community and social change. Be ready to meet new people, learn new skills and challenge your understanding of community engagement and justice. 

What topics will be covered?
There will be 3 tracks to explore this year:

Justice: This theme focuses on the historical foundations of marginalization and addresses how our justice system disenfranchises people at a disproportionate rate. Justice sessions raise awareness of legislation and educate attendees on the societal impact.   

Action: This theme engages attendees through strategies and skills to counter injustices. Action sessions provide a variety of action steps to further education, advocate for community organizations, and fight for true justice. 

Engagement: This theme informs attendees how nonprofits and other organizations interact with their communities. Engagement sessions educate attendees on the role they play in upholding or challenging intersecting issues. 

Who should attend?

Everyone! If you have been involved in service, if you care about inequality, if you want Marquette to be an inclusive community, if you are an experienced activist, or if you just want to learn more --- Join us! Students of all levels are welcome.

What does the conference cost?
