First, a little background: The General Assembly Exhibit Hall has long been a beloved part of the GA experience.  We wanted the exhibit hall this year to be a part of Justice GA, and also serve a specific purpose toward our larger vision and goals of this GA.  We welcomed UU exhibitors as well as other human rights and service organizations, past exhibitors and vendors of goods sold to benefit human rights and justice causes. We are excited for all these groups to form the Justice GA Expo, which will carry on the role of an important networking hub for the exchange of information and ideas.

As a part of the reservation process, each 5 day booth made a minimum donation of $150 to support partner organization participation in the exhibit hall and to support the 2012 GA Service Project.

As an additional show of support, exhibitors could choose to increase their donation or pledge service hours.  These exhibiting groups all pledged 40 service hours to be completed on their own, unrelated to activities at General Assembly:

We will hopefully have an upcoming blog post from one of them further detailing how they plan to spend their 40 hours of service.

To maximize the opportunity for justice work, partnership, and conversations, Arizona community partners are invited to utilize table space on Sunday, June 24 from 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. when the Justice GA Expo is open to the public. We will have a number of skirted tables set up in a prominent area of the exhibit hall that will be free for community partners to disseminate information, talk to attendees and the public, and sell items if desired.

We will also have a hands-on service project to be completed in the hall on Saturday.
