Welcome to the February 2023 installment of Ascension: A master class on social justice igniting movement, thought and a radical reimagining of personal possibility. Addressing prejudice is hard. Standing up to discrimination is exhausting. Being that voice and that shield are draining. But we have an obligation to stop hate, promote inclusion, and foster belonging. These past years have made salient that work is accomplished when we hold hope, when we speak up, and when we walk together. We may not always see the fruits of our labor, the inroads made, or the lives saved. And...Your actions matter. Your voices matter. And the fight for justice is strong because of your willingness to show up to it! The February 2023 Ascension series includes discussions from local scholars and advocates on sexism, racism, homophobia, transphobia, and intersectionality. Walk with us!
