RE: The Work of Resistance


What does resistance look like in St. Louis today? Join a panel of leaders—Sharon Morrow, Dr. LJ Punch, and Kayla Reed—involved in grassroots efforts for social change, who will place the global examples cited in Stories of Resistance into dialogue with local forms of activism. Exploring topics such as communal care, harm reduction, and resistance to state oppression, speakers will offer insights and invitations to their work in the pursuit of justice and equity in our city. CAM School and Community Programs Manager Miriam Ruiz will moderate this virtual discussion.
