We are thrilled to announce Project 20/20: From Transition to Transformation. Project 20/20 is a collaborative online programming series organized and sponsored by three AALL chapters in the Mid-Atlantic region.
The series will kick off with our keynote address and LLSDC Sandy Peterson Memorial Lecture speaker: Ijeoma Oluo, New York Times bestselling author of So You Want to Talk About Race.
Ijeoma Oluo is a Seattle-based Writer, Speaker, and Internet Yeller. Her work on social issues such as race and gender has been published in The Guardian, The Stranger, Washington Post, ELLE magazine, NBC News and more.
On Thursday, October 1 at 2:00 PM ET, Ms. Oluo will be joining us to discuss race, allyship, and changes we can make to promote equity and justice in our profession and communities. Kristina J. Alayan, Director of the Howard University School of Law Library will be in conversation with Ms.Oluo — followed by Q&A.
What else can you expect from Project 20/20? This series will feature three tracks.
Every month will feature a 1) program, 2) social networking event, and 3) professional development workshop.
Registration is free, and you are welcome to pick and choose which events resonate most with you.
On Friday, October 23 at 1:00 PM ET, we will be hosting a panel discussion about making the most of professional development activities.
On Friday, October 30 at 5:00 PM ET, our social event will be a Halloween Happy Hour.
In these unprecedented and isolating times, we hope these events will strengthen our connections both within our chapters and with our colleagues across the profession.
Please join us each month, starting next month! If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
