2016 Regional Conferences

2016 Regional Conferences

Copyright 2016 Favianna Rodriguez, Favianna.com


The 2016 Regional Conferences promise to be some of the best ever. We can promise that no matter which AIUSA region you call home, you'll have an incredible time hearing from inspiring speakers, networking with other activists, learning about the most pressing human rights issues of our time, developing your organizer skill set and shaping AIUSA policy. We'll have information soon on agendas, speakers, and more so check back often.

Mark your calendars now!



Our theme this year is “Change Our World.” We stand shoulder to shoulder with activists in the United States and throughout the world to make a lasting human rights impact. We strive to embrace and reflect all identities that make up humanity in order to foster a world where justice, freedom, and dignity are recognized as central to the inalienable rights of all human beings. 

“You cannot change any society unless you take responsibility for it, unless you see yourself as belonging to it and responsible for changing it.” Grace Lee Boggs.
