The Sabo Center is excited to announce that this summer, Augsburg University will be hosting a national conference for the Place-Based Justice Network (PBJN), of which our institution is a member, along with 19 other higher education institutions from across the country. The Place-Based Justice Network is a learning community committed to transforming higher education and our communities by deconstructing systems of oppression through place-based community engagement with a racial justice lens.
At the Summer Institute on July 10-12, 2019, teams from universities and colleges from across the country will come together to learn, strengthen our practice, and network.
The PBJN has released a call for proposals for workshops and breakout sessions at the Summer Institute. They seek proposals for breakout sessions that center dialogue and interactivity on topics related to place-based community engagement initiatives and their planning, development, programs, evaluation and impact. Potential topics for breakout sessions include, but are not limited to:
*Scholar-activism and community-based research: examples and lessons learned
*Relationship-building and decentralized decision making
*Sustaining long-term commitments with neighborhoods and communities
*Critical scholarship on community engagement including racial justice, economic justice, education justice, disability justice, queer, and feminist theory and practices
*Lessons from community organizing
*Asset-based community development
*Power analysis and community voice
*Anti-racist storytelling strategies
*Preparing students to enter and transition out of place-based community engagement
Breakout session proposals are due Monday, May 13th, 2019 at 5pm PST.
