Our Whole Lives Matter

November 6, 2014 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Free

Join the Jamaica Plain Forum and friends in hosting an intergenerational and interracial panel exploring an intersectional approach to amplifying social impact work. What happens when identity politics fall by the way side and we bring our whole selves, as convoluted as they may be, to our work?

Come hear panelists’ stories on how they have navigated various parts of their identities–as fathers, as children, as activists, as black, as women–in their work for social justice and equity.

Meck Groot, a local social justice advocate will facilitate the panel.
Panelist include:
Shay Stewart-Bouley, the Executive Director of Community Change Inc.
Carolyn Chou, Program Director at the Asian American Resource Workshop and JP resident
Shea Justice, Teacher and Artist behind the Boston Strong? Exhibit
Jason Pramas, Professor of Communications at Lesley University and Boston Strong? Exhibit Artist
Feel It Speak It Slam Poetry Troupe will be performing.
