About The Summit

Building Momentum for a Just Future Together

The Greenlining Institute’s Just Future Summit 2023 brought together some of most important voices in the movement for racial justice. With more than 1,100 attendees, our event remains one of the country’s largest racial equity conferences.

From Gen Z leaders shedding light on emerging issues to seasoned activists speaking to how we maintain joy and resilience in the face of atrocities at home and abroad; #JFS2023 speakers and panelists tapped into our collective impatience for change and shared their essential wisdom on how we keep building a more just future for all.

With 2023 marking Greenlining’s 30th anniversary, we created a space to truly showcase our gratitude and commitment to our communities with the biggest and best Summit yet. Thanks to our attendees, speakers, volunteers, and donors for making this event a major success. 

We’ll be back in 2025. Stay tuned for updates!
