After the success of their inaugural convention last year, Justice Con is returning for their second annual event April 16 through the 18. The event will be held virtually on the Justice Con’s YouTube channel.

The convention is dedicated to the American Foundation For Suicide Prevention (AFSP), a voluntary health organization based in New York City, with a public policy office based in Washington, D.C., and local chapters in all 50 United States. The organization’s stated mission is to “save lives and bring hope to those affected by suicide.” The Snyder family has set up a special Autumn Snyder Tribute Fund in honor of Autumn, who tragically passed away during the production of Justice League and the director’s cut is dedicated to her.

“With the pandemic still very much affecting our lives, our goal is to bring the feel of comic conventions right into people’s homes around the world via live streamed panels, workshops using live chats for questions from the audience, a cosplay contest and more,” Justice Con coordinators stated in a release.

Justice Con is completely free to attend and will be accessible for fans across the planet. Participants will have the option to purchase merchandise or participate in auctions throughout the three-day-event, with all proceeds going to AFSP. Guests will also have an option to donate directly via a fundraiser. 

Friday, April 16th will be reserved for fan workshops.

Saturday, April 17th will be dedicated to “Zack Snyder’s Justice League,” the fan demanded epic that was the centerpiece for JusticeCon’s inaugural convention.

Sunday, April 18th will belong to the upcoming “Army of the Dead,” which takes place in Las Vegas following a zombie outbreak. In the new Netflix original, a group of mercenaries take the ultimate gamble, venturing into the quarantine zone to pull off the greatest heist ever attempted.
