Talk I

Craftivism:
The Art of Gentle Protest

June 22, 2019
Speaker: Sarah Corbett

When we think of protest many will envision signs, chants, and marching. Join Sarah Corbett, award-winning activist, author and founder of the global Craftivist Collective in conversation with Tatiana von Fürstenberg to hear about the type of activism Corbett calls ‘gentle protest’ using craftivism (...) (craft + activism). Learn how Corbett’s work has helped to change laws, policies, hearts and minds around the world. (Close)

Talk II

Testif–i:
Stories of Re-entry

July 28, 2019
Speaker: Susan Burton

Storytelling is a powerful tool to open windows into the lived experiences of marginalized people whose voices often go unheard. Many think the largest barrier to incarcerated people are the fences of the institution – this isn't true. Susan Burton, and A New Way of Life present Testif-i, a talk where (...) formerly incarcerated women and their children share their truth, trauma and triumph, helping to heal their own pain while sparking awareness at the same time. A New Way of Life's mission is to provide housing and support for formerly incarcerated women, work to restore the civil rights of formerly incarcerated people and empower them to be advocates for social change.

Talk III

Resilience
Sept 1, 2019
Speaker: Dominique Morgan

Resilience is usually the by-product of trauma. Individuals navigating insurmountable issues develop strength, resolve and tenacity. In a world where celebration of resilience is plentiful, we often forget to acknowledge and affirm the lived experiences that are its seed. (...)Join Dominique Morgan, award-winning artist, activist, speaker, and National Director of Black & Pink in a discussion about the direct and secondary impacts of incarceration on individuals, children, and communities and how we can create a society where resilience is not necessary for survival.
