‘Demanding Radical Reform’: HSU’s 26th Annual Social Justice Summit

The MultiCultural Center (MCC) at Humboldt State presents the 26th Annual Social Justice Summit from Monday, March 2 to Saturday, March 7 with Keynote Speaker Mia Mingus.

This year’s summit challenges dominant narratives that people accept without hesitation. The Summit is free and allows attendees to express themselves through various forms such as presentations, workshops, musical performances, and more.

The MCC invites the public to “question, resist, and disrupt the hegemonic ideologies, processes, and systems that oppress us all.”

Abby Abinanti, a Yurok tribal member and California’s first Native female lawyer, will open the summit with a presentation, “Creating Justice by Implementing Change,” on Tuesday, March 3 in the Kate Buchanan Room (KBR) at 5 p.m.

Professor Asao B. Inoue from Arizona State University will share how institutions can be a vehicle for change in his presentation, “How Can A University Be Antiracist and Address White Supremacy?” The talk will be held in the KBR on Friday, March 6, from 1-2:15 p.m. followed by a faculty workshop at the Center for Teaching and Learning from 3-4:30 p.m.

Keynote speaker Mia Mingus presents “The Practice in the Service of Longing: Everyday Transformative Justice,” Friday, March 6 in the KBR at 5 p.m.
Mingus is a queer writer, educator, and community organizer who focuses on disability and transformative justice with a strong devotion to ending sexual violence.
