Organizing Stories Workshop: Reverend Dr. Liz Theoharis

Reverend Dr. Liz Theoharis, Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival

October 21, 2020 · 4:30 pm · via Zoom

Humanities Council

Organizing Stories is a student-driven project supported by the Humanities Council Exploratory Grant in the Humanities and co-founded and co-directed by Professors Autumn M. Womack (English; African American Studies) and Monica Huerta (English; American Studies). The project connects students with veteran organizers in order to investigate the long histories of anti-racist activism, racial justice organizing, and coalition-building as they relate to questions of narrative, storytelling, and humanistic study more broadly.

The Reverend Dr. Liz Theoharis is the Director of the Kairos Center for Religions, Rights, and Social Justice at Union Theological Seminary, and the Co-Chair of the Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival, a movement which builds on the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s work and has emerged as one of the nation’s leading coalitions for social change.
