Speaking Truth to Power
Speaking Truth to Power is a term coined by Bayard Rustin. One of the leading civil rights activists during the 50s, that is rarely spoken of because he was an out gay man. We will evoke his teachings to learn the power of our own experiences and find strength in our narratives. This workshop will explore how to tap into our own stories and use them to empower ourselves to create change.
