Humanities Action Lab to host storytelling session

Humanities Action Lab

Join us for our fourth HAL Summer Storytelling Session of the summer.

This session will focus on storytelling and media making, and will allow us to hear from frontline community partners about their work with Environmental Justice and how COVID has impacted the community and their efforts. This will also be an opportunity to collectively share experiences and resources, and reimagine how we might use these mediums to effect change.

We’re thrilled that this session will feature community partner Edith Tovar of the Little Village Environmental Justice Organization (LVEJO) in Chicago, telling stories from their ongoing local efforts. We will also have the opportunity to learn more about the fantastic storytelling project from our partners at the University of Puerto Rico at Mayagüez:  “Mi María: Puerto Rico After the Hurricane”.
