Believe Me: How Trusting Women Can Change the World—an Evening with Jaclyn Friedman

Event date: 
Saturday, February 22, 2020 - 7:30pm to 9:00pm

Charis welcomes Jaclyn Friedman, one of the two editors of Yes Means Yes, and now, Believe Mewhich brings readers into the evolving landscape of the movement against sexual violence, and outlines how trusting women is the critical foundation for future progress. In Believe Me, contributors ask and answer the crucial question: What would happen if we didn't just believe women, but acted as though they matter? If we take women's experiences of online harassment seriously, it will transform the internet. If we listen to and center survivors, we could revolutionize our systems of justice. If we believe Black women when they talk about pain, we will save countless lives. With contributions from many of the most important voices in feminism today, Believe Me is an essential roadmap for the #MeToo era and beyond.

This event is co-sponsored by The Dream Warriors Foundation who will be on hand to talk about their work and solicit new members.
