#ThisIsAmerica: Representation Matters with Project Happyvism

Children’s early experiences shape what they imagine to be possible for people who look like them, live near them, or come from where they come from. Children determine what they can be by the representation that they see around them. Join us for an interactive storytelling session led by activist, educator, DJ, poet and co-founder of Project Happyvism, Justis Lopez ’14 ’15 (ED). Creators of Project Happyvism will lead the workshop for adults and children on how to have important conversations around representation, loving our identities, and why choosing joy and self-love are powerful forms of activism. Everyone will have the opportunity to create their own “book” to tell their personal story.

This is a family friendly program and we encourage you to bring the children in your life!

This program will be live only and will not be recorded.

Please RSVP by Saturday, March 27th, 2021.
