Opening Panel: Communicating Hope, Visioning Justice

In the era of increasing disparities and the specter of another economic recession, how can social justice advocates and communicators effectively communicate hope and optimism in the face of these challenges?  How can we echo the theme from the last U. S. Social Forum:  “Another World is Possible and Another US is Necessary”

Over the 12 months, we’ve seen an inspiring uprising of community voices, often amongst the young, using creative communications techniques to protest existing entrenched policies and their supporting systemic structures, from the Arab Spring protests to the Occupy Wall Street and Take back the City campaigns.

The opening panel will help lead a discussion of these and recent successes in communicating hope and visioning justice.  Throughout the conference, we’ll have opportunities to explore case studies, best practices, future challenges, and effective ways for communicating and sustaining our hope, vision, and movement for social justice into the future.
