FAQ: Justice Joint

So, what is this “Justice Joint” anyway? The Justice Joint is a magnificent mini-expo room, where conference attendees gather for short breaks on Saturday. The room includes displays from Alliance organizations, an internet café, and coffee/water. The Saturday afternoon break at 3 p.m. is a longer break that usually has snack food available. Bring a brief case or tote bag to collect the materials you pick up in the Justice Joint!

Justice Joint

Rediscover Your Passion!
Saturday, 7:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

ATJ and BLC players in the Palm Springs of Washington visit the Justice Joint when shoulders begin to slump and the tell-tale signs of a meltdown appear. You won’t need to catch an aerial tramway though to check email, laugh at clips from conferences past, enjoy a comforting cup of coffee, chat, snack and relax among Alliance displays and resources.
