The Astronomical Society of the Pacific’s 132nd annual meeting was held in December 2020 amidst a global pandemic that continues to challenge education and public outreach, the emergence of genuine widespread interest in social justice and inclusion, and a growing awareness of the threat of global climate change. This virtual conference of K-16 educators and public engagement professionals in astronomy and related fields shared best practices, innovative ideas, lessons learned, research findings, and evaluation results to help the community move toward a better future.

This ASP conference was its first virtual event of its kind and included over 350 attendees. Thematic strands for this conference included: online K-16 teaching and learning; public engagement in informal settings; science communication and social media; diversity, equity, inclusion and social justice; and climate/environmental science and dark skies preservation.
