Just Net Coalition
Are you planning to be at RightsCon this year? Join us at Tunis, and be part of shaping a future agenda for digital equity and social justice.
Just Net Coalition invites you to the workshop:
What do social movements need to do in the age of data? Towards a digital justice manifesto
Venue: Hôtel LAICO Tunis (RightsCon Venue), CARTHAGE 2
Date: June 11, 2:00-4:15 pm
In 2018, the Just Net Coalition (JNC) convened its first satellite event at RightsCon, Toronto, ‘Contending with the digital frontier – What next for social movements?’ The event aimed at brokering a dialogue between actors from social movements and members of the digital rights community and explore common pathways for data and digital justice. Over the year, we have kept the conversation going at different venues and platforms.
In March 2019, JNC organized a three day international workshop on Equity and Social Justice in a Digital World in Bangkok which brought together a global network of actors working on digital rights, the digital economy, and in sectors like agriculture, trade, education, gender rights and labor.
At Tunis, we plan to take forward one of the critical agendas that came out of the Bangkok meeting - the need for a digital justice manifesto. Drawing from the building blocks that came out of our Bangkok meeting, our RightsCon satellite event, What do social movements need to do in the age of data? Towards a digital justice manifesto, will be aimed at further developing key categories and the framework of a Digital Justice Manifesto creating a reframed mandate for social movements from the standpoint of various rights in the digital age, and enrich it through the learnings from a structured inter-movement dialogue.
We invite you to be part of this exciting and enriching process. Whether you're from a traditional social movement, a digital rights activist, or simply interested in these issues, we would love to hear from you.
Registrations for the event are open now. Sign up and spread the word.
