The Daily Work of Justice

The Daily Work of Justice is a conversation series that invites people directly involved in an issue to share their lived experience, as a way of providing space for others to engage with empathy, understanding, and action. It was created collaboratively by people from diverse units across William & Mary and Williamsburg​.

Our 2020 conversations on Ability & Disability have concluded. We hosted more than 40 speakers sharing their lived experience as disabled people, family members, support staff, policy-makers, and community advocates. Thank you to each of them for their participation in this program, and all they do to make our communities stronger. 

Whether you attended the conversations or not, we encourage you to review the learning resources and action opportunities we have collected.

Take Action

Each spring, we host a conversation series focused on a social issue and the people directly affected. Over the course of three weeks, we engage the topic in conversation with individuals of diverse perspectives and lived experiences. Participants gather around tables, and after a brief introduction, participate in small group conversations. A guest speaker with personal experience in the issue and a facilitator are at each table. 

 The Daily Work of Justice series began in 2017 with a focus on the criminal justice system. In 2019 the series focused on addiction and substance abuse. The 2021 theme will be announced later in the year.
