PacRim Conference Presentation: How to be fearless and gentle

Today I am presenting at the Pacific Rim International Conference on Disability and Diversity in Honolulu Hawai’i. I am humbled to share my stories, songs and poems. Here are my presentation slides for folks who want a copy.

How to be Fearless and Gentle: Challenging Oppression and Building Community

How can we, as advocates for social justice act fearlessly and gently with love to bridge differences and build community? Fearlessness is understanding that we may become uncomfortable, emotional, defensive, but staying committed to taking care of one another. To be gentle is to understand our limits – that we have a finite amount of time and energy, and to keep in perspective that we cannot do everything. In this presentation and interactive workshop, Janice Lee will speak about her experiences as an artist/advocate/community organizer and share insightful songs and poems about fighting oppression while building communities to flourish.
