In a live taping for the new #HealMeToo Festival Podcast, Artistic Director Hope Singsen will discuss activism as a mode of healing in our lives and in our culture with two phenomenal guests: legendary performance artist-activist Emma Sulkowicz and formerly undocumented student activist Jerin Arifa.
In 2014-15, Emma Sulkowiczs Mattress Performance (Carry That Weight) and direct action-activism at Columbia University spurred global headlines, rallied students nationwide, and put a spotlight on campus sexual violence policies.
Jerin Arifa is a formerly undocumented activist who is changing millions of lives. Jerin spearheaded the sexual harassment, assault, domestic violence and anti-stalking policy for the third largest university in the USwhile undocumented! A movement-builder, Jerin now trains activists across the U.S. as the Founder of the National Organization for Womens (NOW) inaugural virtual chapter, Young Feminists and Allies.
