LORA M. ROBINS SPEAKER SERIES

What's in a story? Can stories empower and influence communities?  

At the core, people use stories to understand the world and our place in it. But stories do more than describe the way things are. When advocacy and authenticity are incorporated, those stories challenge systemic inequities and create social change. If we want to transform society, WE MUST share new narratives that recognize and celebrate the value of ALL people.

Join us for a two-part series with nationally-known thought leaders sharing their experiences and perspectives on the power of narratives to create social change.
