A Conference For Progressive New York

World-renowned speakers will give you new perspective and ideas to take back to your community and change the world.
COMMUNITY OF SUPPORT
More than 500 activists, organizers and leaders from across New York State will be at Justice Works. Share with each other.
BUILDING OUR MOVEMENT
Over 100 organizations are represented, connecting to build common purpose and strategy.
Resist and Build
There’s never been a more urgent time to organize.
This is Our Moment
This is a critical moment for our communities. Our families, friends and neighbors need protection. We will be there. We will resist.
A Vision for Justice
We come together and build a movement because this isn’t only about winning a campaign – it’s about creating a world built on justice.
Spreading the Truth
We live in a society that’s built on oppression. A very power few keep taking, leaving the rest of us to suffer. We are working to build a society that works for everyone.
Sometimes the work gets tiring. That’s why I enjoy Justice Works so much. You meet people from all over the state who are doing great things. You learn about issues and develop skills. And you leave ready to fight again!
Justice Works is the go-to event for the experienced and inexperienced. It is an event that provides vital tools and aids concerned citizens in breaking the turf for a brighter and stronger New York. Justice Works is not only a family reunion of creative and innovative minds building a movement, but it’s opportunity that realigns my mind in order to organize for a world of justice and peace.
Justice Works is the top conference for New York progressives. You will leave with passion, organizing skills, and a renewed commitment to social justice. It is also a lot of fun and a great opportunity to meet people who share our values.
