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!

The full conference program is at the printer, and will be distributed on site at the conference. You may view or download the .pdf here: Program ATJ-BLC 2009 final5/21/09: edited with updated version of program
