with Valarie Kaur
Wednesday, February 5th at 7pm
Evergreen Community School
"The future is dark. Is this the darkness of the tomb -- or the darkness of the womb?"
Valarie Kaur reframes the present moment in history as one of transition and calls on us to show up in the labor of birthing a new future. How do we practice revolutionary love in our homes and schools? Valarie will share her work on revolutionary love and invite parents and educators to reflect with her on raising our children with more than the knowledge for tomorrow's jobs but the wisdom for today's justice.
Parents and educators are invited to this informative and thought-provoking talk by civil rights activist, author and TED speaker Valarie Kaur.
VALARIE KAUR is a seasoned civil rights activist and prophetic voice "at the forefront of progressive change." She burst into American consciousness after the 2016 election when her Watch Night Service address went viral with 30+ million views. As a lawyer, filmmaker, and innovator, Valarie has helped win policy change on multiple fronts and now leads the Revolutionary Love Project to champion love as a force for justice. She has been a regular TV commentator on MSNBC, and contributor to CNN, NPR, PBS, the Hill, Huffington Post, and the Washington Post. She founded Groundswell, the Yale Visual Law Project and Faithful Internet. A daughter of Sikh farmers in California, Valarie earned degrees at Stanford University, Harvard Divinity School, and Yale Law School. She was named a "Young Global Leader" by the World Economic Forum. Valarie's new book, a memoir and manifesto of Revolutionary Love, expands on her "blockbuster" TED Talk and hits the shelves Summer 2020. She lives in Los Angeles with her husband Sharat and her children Kavi and Ananda.
