Who Gets Heard? A Dialogues for Change: RE: Thinking Politics Event



On November 18, join the University Library and the Democracy Engagement Exchange for a panel discussion on reframing politics and how we make our voices heard.

Elections are supposed to represent our collective voices, but some voices are clearly louder than others. How do we get heard at these critical moments?

Guest panel:

Yonis Hassan, CEO and co-founder (with Noah ‘40’ Shebib) of Justice Fund is upending traditional conceptions of philanthropy. 

Samantha Reusch, executive director of Apathy is Boring is making political engagement cool again nation-wide 

Sam Tecle, assistant professor, Department of Sociology, is bringing new focus to the ways in which resistance shapes and builds communities.

Dialogues for Change: RE: Thinking Politics

The University Library and Democratic Engagement Exchange at the Faculty of Arts are partnering to deliver a year long series of programming for the university community that aims to instill and normalize participation in democratic processes and conversations. 

Civic literacy, and the literacy of listening, are guiding principles of the series and will be used to establish the framework through which conversations are grounded. The overall goal is to connect these key concepts  to our democratic institutions. The series will work to unpack power and politics, and deconstruct contentious language that inevitably arises in many discussions about politics.
