The mission of the Shepard Symposium on Social Justice is to spotlight contemporary inequities in order to promote transformative learning and engagement in the pursuit of justice. Each year, we bring together leading voices in social justice—scholars, students, community members, activists, artists, and filmmakers—to support an inclusive dialogue addressing issues of social and environmental justice in interpersonal, community, and structural contexts.
