Operationalizing Liberation for a Diverse Democracy

Virtual CU System Summit – Jan. 31

The University of Colorado Social Justice Summit, a biennial, systemwide event, aspires to ignite critical engagement and responsibility for cultivating and sustaining a diverse democracy.

The theme for the 2023 summit is Operationalizing Liberation for a Diverse Democracy, which is a call to action to disrupt behaviors and oppressive actions, structures and systems preventing our collective liberation. Liberation is defined as the act of gaining freedom from oppression and depends on each of us working in community to learn and hold each other accountable if we are to build a more just world.

The CU Social Justice Summit is open to all undergraduate and graduate students, professional and frontline staff, faculty and engaged community members connected to the University of Colorado Boulder, the University of Colorado Denver, the University of Colorado Colorado Springs, the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus and the CU system administration.

The 2023 summit will encourage spaces of joy, healing, transformation and learning to enact radical possibilities. Our hope is that participants will center a love for humanity and work toward the disruption of all forms of oppression.
