The Movement is the Message: Meeting people where they are and breaking through ideological barriers.
January 14 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 pm
Changing minds and hearts on social justice issues is challenging, even during the best of times. And these are not the best of times.
Today, Americans are more divided, and less willing to listen to one another, than at any point in the last half century. But there are effective strategies for meeting people where they are in order to move them closer to justice. And time-tested ways to break through barriers in order to make sure that your message is heard and acted on.
In The Movement is the Message: Meeting people where they are & breaking through ideological barriers, author and activist Anne K. Ream will consider new strategies for using our personal stories to create political change … explore ways that language and word choice can open audiences up – or shut them down – in our politically polarized era … make the case for discovering your own, truly unique “change style” … and remind us that the fight for joy is a critical element of the fight for justice.
She’ll also speak to lessons we can learn from iconic movement leaders and opinion shapers (Bob Dylan, Dolores Huerta, Rosa Parks, and Martin Luther King, Jr), contemporary change creators (novelist Dorothy Allison, comedian Trevor Noah, global hip hop star Sister Fa), and the international community of gender based violence activists Anne has collaborated with through her work with The Voices and Faces Project (including World Without Exploitation’s very own Vednita Carter).
Join us on Thursday, January 14 from 12 – 1 pm Eastern as we kick off World Without Exploitation’s 2021 Now & Next Speakers Series with a presentation that will be timely, necessary and thought-provoking.
The Movement is the Message is part of Marketing a Movement, a workshop series launched through a partnership between The Voices and Faces Project and Brew Communications, with support from NoVo Foundation.
