Bringing the Community Together to Catalyze Change

San José State's "Transforming Communities: A Movement to Racial Justice," is a visionary annual event designed to catalyze change in our community. Events are hosted by the SJSU community focused on creating a more racially just and equitable city and county. Building off of last year’s successful event and centering attention on the need to create lasting change that endures, this year’s theme is "A Movement, Not a Moment," taking place Oct. 31 – Nov. 11, 2022.
