Please join me in supporting the virtual event for In Celebration of Mothers.
Many of you have joined me in past years for the luncheon and I look forward to doing that again, hopefully next year! For others, this is a great opportunity to join the virtual event to learn more about an amazing non-profit.
In addition to hearing from the keynote speaker, Valarie Kaur, she will also participate in a live discussion with Donna Garske, the Executive Director of Center for Domestic Peace.
Here is some more information on the keynote speaker:
Valarie Kaur is a civil rights activist, award-winning filmmaker, lawyer, faith leader, mother, and founder of the Revolutionary Love Project. Her social justice campaigns have helped win policy change on hate crimes, racial profiling, immigration detention, solitary confinement, marriage equality and internet freedom. She founded Groundswell Movement, the Yale Visual Law Project and Faithful Internet, initiatives that equip new generations with tools for social change. During her work inside supermax prisons, on the military base at Guantanamo and at sites of mass shootings, she identified a surprising key element for social change: the ethic of love. She now leads the Revolutionary Love Project to champion love as a public ethic and wellspring for social change.
Kaur earned degrees at Stanford University, Harvard Divinity School and Yale Law School.
