Social justice work has never been more critical than it is right now. If we are to collaborate and create a world where everyone is able to participate in creating a better future, we must connect personal narrative with the power structure. One critical tool in social justice engagement is the use of storytelling as a way to speak truth to power. Have you been worried that your story is not enough to effect change? Have you felt overwhelmed with the endless possibilities to engage in social justice work? How do issues of decolonization and white supremacy fit into social justice?
Join this Salon to discuss questions such as:
1. What are the different types of social justice work and how have you engaged in it?
2. How do issues of decolonization and white supremacy affect change?
3. How do you get the most out of your story as an innovative changemaker?
4. As we move towards an increasingly complicated democracy, what does that mean for change making?
5. How can you use technology and authentic voice to create a platform for inspired, intentional action?
