Facebook / Tweet

From St. Norbert College, October 15, 2020
by Mike Counter, mike.counter@snc.edu, 920-362-8864

A free webinar on the importance and function of democratic movements, aimed primarily at Wisconsin college students, will be held on Wednesday, Oct. 21, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. To register, go to www.http://snc.edu/go/ourdemocracy.

Join an array of community organizers to explore the different facets of what a movement is, or can be, and the various roles needed to sustain them. Discover what your role is and how you can contribute to the local movements in your community that protect your voice, your right to vote and, ultimately, our democracy.

“What’s at Stake: Our Democracy,” part of the Fragile Democracy series, will feature The Rev. William Barber II with “Peace is Loud;” Marjan Safinia, director of “And She Could be Next;” Ashley O’Shay, director of “Unapologetic;” Yamila Ruiz, National High Road director of “One Fair Wage;” and Sonya Renee Taylor, activist and author of “The Body is Not An Apology.” It will be moderated by Astra Taylor, filmmaker, activist and author, most recently of “Democracy May Not Exist, But We’ll Miss It When It’s Gone.”

The webinar is co-hosted by The Norman Miller Center for Peace, Justice & Public Understanding at St. Norbert College, The Menard Center for the Study of Institutions & Innovation at UW-Stout, and The Wisconsin Institute for Peace & Conflict Studies, in partnership with Black Leaders Organizing for Communities (BLOC).

This event will provide simultaneous English-to-Spanish language interpretation as well as Certified Deaf Interpreters. To access Spanish interpretation, please download the Zoom application to your desktop or mobile device.

This event is intended to be nonpartisan. For more information, contact Robert Pyne at robert.pyne@snc.edu.
