1-Day University on Social Justice

An online awareness event and fundraiser to benefit ACE MV’s community programming

ACE MV’s 1-Day University on Social Justice, held on November 18, was a great success! Many thanks to our inspiring speakers, to all who participated, and of course, a special thanks to everyone who donated!

In case you missed it, videos of each hour are posted below!

This dynamic event featured lectures, discussions and live interviews with six New England community leaders and experts on topics of social and racial justice, grassroots leadership, Martin Luther King Jr., immigrant support, poverty and finances, Wampanoag priorities, and more.

Inspiring and relevant to our times, these conversations move our work forward to create vibrant communities on Martha’s Vineyard and beyond.
