New York City will be the focal point of conversations surrounding justice and change on December 1, as the United Justice Coalition (UJC) and Roc Nation come together for the second annual United Justice Coalition Summit at the Javits Center.
The summit promises to be a powerhouse of dialogue with a versatile lineup of speakers and panel discussions delving into crucial topics. From civic engagement and probation and parole laws to sentencing alternatives, this event will provide a comprehensive examination of the complex landscape of justice reform.
This summit is unique because it focuses on facilitating open conversations among leaders, experts, and advocates across various fields committed to making a difference in justice. This inclusive approach aims to inspire conversations and ideas to drive meaningful change.
The first wave of confirmed speakers includes Grammy-nominated artist Fat Joe, author/professor Dr. Michael Eric Dyson, and Angela Rye, CEO of IMPACT Strategies, among many others. It gathers influential figures, each offering their unique perspective on justice reform.
The event is open to the public at no cost, fostering a community of individuals taking public action to address the world’s most pressing challenges and activating resources nationwide.
Beyond the powerful speakers and panel discussions, the summit will feature dedicated stations providing legal information, networking sessions, and an organization exhibition area with over 60 national and local non-profit organizations showcasing their mission and resources.
In a bid to tell the stories of change and activism, an art gallery and retail area will be included, leveraging the creative talents of speakers to ignite meaningful conversations.
“The UJC is committed to creating an experience where individuals from all backgrounds can come together to take action around key justice issues and reforms in our country,” UJC founding member and Roc Nation managing director Dania Diaz said. “Together, we want to exchange resources and ideas to support advocacy efforts and help tackle the challenges affecting communities across America.”
The inaugural UJC Summit in 2022 set the stage for this year’s event, bringing together a dynamic lineup of activists, entertainers, attorneys, and experts to address critical topics in the realm of justice.
As the second annual United Justice Coalition Summit approaches, it promises to further the dialogue on justice reform and highlight pathways toward positive change.
