Day 1 of the Activist Scholar in Residence Series 2-day event
MIRROR MEMOIRS: Trauma, Healing, and Surviving as Tools for Social Justice
Screening followed by a Dinner, Q&A, and Healing Circles
This theater project breaks secrecy and isolation, and uses storytelling and survivor leadership to illuminate the needs and wisdom of survivors and help viewers imagine a different world. From 7:00-7:30, food will be served in the MCC Lounge following the screening, followed by a 30min Q&A unpacking the theater project. From 8-9PM, the night will end with Amita and Jaden's facilitated healing circles, or spaces to process the theater project and its insights on the world that we live in and what we need to do collectively to end rape culture. There will be one circle for survivors of sexual violence, and one circle for allies and accomplices.
