Educate-Organize-Advocate (EOA) is a social justice and civic engagement conference hosted at the University of Missouri-Kansas City that seeks to provide the necessary skills and resources for faculty, staff, and students to engage in meaningful advocacy, dialogue, and critique.

Consider what topics and skillsets you can present that would fit with the conference theme and objectives.

  • Proposals do not need to incorporate all objectives, but must fit at least one. If your proposal will primarily raise awareness, challenge yourself to incorporate elements related to the more active EOA objectives (develop skills and plan for action) as well.
  • Consider your audience when planning your proposal. All sessions must be interactive in nature. If you need help planning an interactive session, check out this list of creative session ideas or reach out to us at before submitting your proposal; we’re happy to help!
  • Sessions should engage with diverse experiences with regard to various lenses of identity. A single session needs not resonate with all identities; however, we will ensure that all identities are represented equitably among the sessions.
  • Be mindful of intersectionality—the significance of the intersection of multiple identities.
  • Use inclusive gender pronouns when referring to your audience.
