Unified Jam is our annual celebration of activist culture. Every year, we bring together local and national voices to talk about the amazing work they're doing, learn from each other, and strengthen the organizer community. We cover all aspects of our culture, including organizing work, technology, social connection, art, and much more.
Last year (2022) was our first year hosting the Jam, and it was a blast! We're so excited to bring it back and connect with the hundreds of stellar individuals building a better world.
Join us for Unified Jam 2023 as we take stock of the midterms, talk about the most important challenges facing activists today, and plan for the future!

Last year, the landscape for reproductive rights was fundamentally altered. This panel brings together individuals who have led and continue to lead the effort to (re)-secure those rights. They’ll share how their experiences help inform them on how to adapt organizing today to meet the challenges of this new landscape.
