It turns out I know a thing or two about my day job! Or at least the Public Relations Society of America thinks so, given they published my article on communicating to Gen Z! Check it out here: Social Strategy: Telling Stories That Matter for an Increasingly Influential Generation.
I’m thrilled to be speaking at the LA Times Festival of Books! The panel, entitled “Feminisms in Motion: Intersectional Voices for Social Change,” will take place Saturday, April 13, from noon–1 p.m., at USC. Attendance will require a ticket, which you can get the day of on-site for free, or as of April 7 for $1 online. The festival is an amazing gathering of book writers and book lovers.
And a glimpse of our panel:
I hope you can join us!
Join us this Thursday for a performance by Amitis Motevalli and a reading by Jessica Hoffmann, Mia Mingus and me! Books will be on sale for $20. The gallery space on campus is beautiful and the show that’s up right now–Somewhere in Between–is incredibly moving. See you there!
Join Daria, Jess and me for a discussion about LOUDmouth, make/shift and Feminisms in Motion. Tuesday, March 5, from 6–7 p.m at Cal State LA in the University-Student Union Los Angeles rooms.
Join us this Thurs. 1/31, from 11:30 a.m.–1:30 p.m. at the Kellogg University Gallery at Cal Poly Pomona for Somewhere in Between, a poetry, prose and performance event. I’ll be reading an essay about growing up Arab American. See you there!
Based on numerous requests from friends, I’m sharing my endorsements for the (tremendously long and difficult to understand) Nov. 6 election here, see below. Next election, a very wise union organizer friend and I will give you a summary of our thinking but I have too much on my plate to do so now, which is why this is a “cheat sheet” not a thorough endorsement with explanations.
You’re invited to join us for an afternoon launch party and reading of Feminisms in Motion: Voices for Justice, Liberation and Transformation. This anthology is a culmination of 10 years of publishing of the feminist magazine make/shift, which Daria, Jess and I started a decade ago. I’ll be reading my essay from the book and there will plenty of food and hugs for all. You can buy a copy of the book online for a discounted price now. See you there!
