JCPA2016 will be groundbreaking in many ways, including holding our first-ever Unconference on Monday morning. At the Uncoference, you’ll tell us what you’re interested in learning more about and vote with your feet.

Numerous local and national community relations groups  have recently encountered the phenomena of “intersectionality” on and off campus in the discussion about BDS.
