Just Connections announces its Third Conference

Connections to the Future: a Search for Just and Sustainable Community Models
June 8-10, 2007

Hosted by
Ferrum College
Ferrum, Virginia

The ?global economy? and ?free trade? have created a bonanza for a small percentage of the population. But while a few grow rich, the cost for most is a breakdown in human relationships that has created a hunger for community. Since 1998, Just Connections has brought together community leaders, activists, students, teachers, and scholars to explore and advocate for democratic community models characterized by development and justice. Our research model, based on an equal partnership between campus and community, admits that the core knowledge about a situation resides in the community itself, and that community members are the most qualified to bring meaning to the application of research skills. Our biennial conference is an effort to draw others into the circle.
