virtual - requires registration



Event Description

Organizing Stories is an initiative co-founded and co-directed by Professors Autumn Womack and Monica Huerta which seeks to connect students with veteran organizers in order to investigate the long histories of anti-racist activism, racial justice organizing, and coalition-building as they relate to questions of narrative, storytelling, and humanistic study more broadly.

Organizing Stories is excited to host Reverend Dr. Liz Theoharis for our first workshop event on Wednesday, October 21st at 4:30 PM.

The Reverend Dr. Liz Theoharis is the Director of the Kairos Center for Religions, Rights, and Social Justice at Union Theological Seminary, and the Co-Chair of the Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival, a movement which builds on the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s work and has emerged as one of the nation’s leading coalitions for social change. 

During her workshop, the Reverend Dr. Liz Theoharis will lead students in a spirited process of piecing together and piecing apart how organizers think about, make use of, and evolve narrative(s) in changing social and political contexts as a fundamental building block of their anti-racist organizing work.

All interested participants will receive an event invitation after completing the Registration Link

Organizing Stories is made possible by an Exploratory Grant in Collaborative Humanities from the Princeton University Humanities Council, as well as through generous support from the Center for Human Values, the Department of African American Studies, the African Humanities Colloquium, the Dean of Faculty, and the English Department.
