    Crossing Borders:  Community Focused Justice Interventions

    October 22-26|The US Grant– San Diego, CA

    Call for Proposals

    Deadline to Submit: Monday, April 15, 2019 at Noon Eastern Time

    The Academy of Architecture for Justice (AAJ) is pleased to announce this call for presentations. We are seeking provocative presentations and discussion topics from a wide range of viewpoints. The conference will continue to highlight traditional justice building types - corrections/detention, courts and law enforcement - with 3 separate tracks allowing for concurrent presentations: 
    Track 1 - Case Studies
    Track 2 - Community-Based Solutions
    Track 3 - Community Inclusive Processes

    We highly encourage presenters to focus on innovative solutions / concepts that address how justice facilities serve a community, cross the border between internal and public interface, engage with communities in unique ways and incorporate community involvement and operations that transcend building type. Collaborating with subject matter experts including policymakers, community-based service providers and community advocates is encouraged. The AAJ welcomes proposals from all of those active in justice facilities - courts, detention and law enforcement - including planners, architects, owners, public safety officials, officers and administrators, contractors and vendors.

    This document aims to answer the most frequently asked questions about the Call for Proposals process. Please take a minute to review it before you submit your final proposals.
