Program Description

Event Details

Writing as Resistance circle & workshop! Here we come together to explore the power of creative writing to resist erasure and reclaim BIPOC history and culture. We will discuss the impact of having our stories told by others without our consent, the importance of representation in our lives and the challenge of growing up without access to our culture. We will also talk about reclaiming our roots and how our identities are dynamic and ever-changing. Most importantly, we will talk about the importance of finding our voice and telling our own story through writing. Writing can be a powerful journey of self-discovery, exploration and resistance!

Yesenia Moya Garay (they/them/ella) is a community educator, organizer, oral storyteller, spoken word artist, from Chihuahua, Mexico. They specialize in radical political education, solidarity work, and transformative alternatives. Through poetry, oral storytelling, digital narratives they curate spaces for BIPOC to use base building, direct community contact, and mutual aid. They are actively involved in local and national organizations and grassroot projects that are centered in queer, trans, intersectional, and abolitionist politics that center the community first and foremost!
