Thank you to all who joined us at Coming Together for Action 2022!
We had an incredible time hearing our exceptional featured speakers, Jeremy Sharp, Gail Christopher and Heather McGhee, Rodrigo Heng-Lehtinen, Deanna Van Buren, Krish O’Mara Vignarajah, Warren Binford, Apryl Alexander, and Dayna Bowen Matthew. Our engaging sessions, which included panels, workshops, roundtables, individual papers, and poster presentations, fostered rich conversations about social justice, mental health, well-being, and connecting communities. Major takeaways of the conference included:
- The importance of social support and connectedness for health and well-being
- Ensuring that we continue to work across disciplines to promote human rights and social justice in our communities
- Recognizing the power of our own voices and actions in effecting change
As Coming Together for Action 2022 has come to a close, we ask you to join us in a continued call to action in promoting healthier, more just communities!
