Reclaiming Belonging: Is Resistance Enough?
Feedback form is now closed.

The current moment has brutally exposed that our constitutional principles and values are more vulnerable than we thought, that shared understandings we took for granted could be tested in unimaginable ways. While we continue to resist, how do we simultaneously cultivate a new, shared story of “us”? What will it take to demonstrate a conception of “we” that is inclusive and just? Do we have the will to find ways of working together that are not predicated on oppression or a denial of our humanity? Hosted by Connie Cagampang Heller, Co-Director of Linked Fate Fund for Justice and founder of Project Linked Fate. With: john a. powell, Director of the Haas Institute for a Fair and Inclusive Society at UC Berkeley; Heather McGhee, President of Demos; Jonathan Smucker, author of Hegemony How-To: A Roadmap for Radicals.
