Join Harry J. Elam (Vice President for the Arts) and Jeff Chang (Executive Director, Institute for Diversity in the Arts) for a conversation on the future of justice movements with:

Linda Sarsour (Lead Organizer/ Board Member, Women’s March)

Patrisse Cullors (Co-Founder, Black Lives Matter + author of When They Call You A Terrorist)

Raquel De Anda (Lead Organizer, People’s Climate March)

Social movements are creating new norms centered in intersectionality and the practice of uplifting many voices toward change. For one historic evening, the Institute for Diversity in the Arts invites leaders of major campaigns for change: Patrisse Cullors (#BlackLivesMatter), Linda Sarsour (The Women’s March), and Raquel De Anda (People’s Climate March) to speak to the idea of mutuality, or what we owe to one another.

This event will be part of a course called “Art + Community: Division, Resilience and Reconciliation”. The class encourages students to think now about how they find commonality and build community in ways that address privilege, redress harm, and imagine new futures.

This course is funded through the generous support of the Dean of Humanities and Sciences, the Vice President for the Arts, the Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education, and Stanford Arts, the Center for Comparative Studies in Race & Ethnicity, African & African American Studies, Women’s Community Center, Stanford Live!, El Centro, Markaz, Black Community Services Center, Students for a Sustainable Stanford, Office of Community Engaged Learning, the Humanities Center.
