For this special call, abstracts are sought that describe how PHN actions have disrupted oppressive, racist, and/or colonizing narratives, structures, or practices in the discipline of nursing and/or the field of public health through social justice approaches. We are specifically looking for abstracts demonstrating how these actions have been used to build and maintain relationships to enhance accountability. Abstracts should be grounded in a sociohistorical context and relevant theory, linked to the work of public health, and include specific actions taken. Given the overall theme of the conference, abstracts that indicate a lens informed by social theory, collective and relational action, and strengths from social connectedness are preferred.
Individual abstracts may be submitted for oral, poster, or roundtable presentation, as well as live or virtual presentation.

All abstracts will be blind-reviewed by 2-3 reviewers using the following criteria:
