The Fight Moves Us Forward
21st Century Activism

Wednesday, January 14, 2015 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Five presenters are given seven minutes each to share their passion, their insight, and what they have learned.

  • what are you fighting for?
  • how did you get involved?
  • what tactics have worked/not worked?
  • what strategies/actions are you focused on now?
  • how can we get involved?

The Fight Moves Us Forward: 21st Century Activism, gives 5 presenters 7 minutes to show specific ways in which they engage in activism, followed by a Q&A session with the audience.

From protests and rallies to social media campaigns to wall murals to civil disobedience, the aim is to demonstrate that there is no one way to be an activist. Using specific examples can help demonstrate how different tactics bring different outcomes for different issues.

Presenters include:

  • Angeli Bhatt and Katrina Pestano from API Chaya – domestic violence/human trafficking
  • Mo! from Got Green? – environmental justice/youth
  • Dante Garcia from 21 Progress – DACA/Immigration
  • Ahmed Gaya from Rising Tide Seattle – direct action on climate change
  • Christina Seong from Sahngnoksoo – racism/discrimination in the arts
  • Moderated by Kevin Owyang

Seating is limited. RSVP is closedA waiting list will be created as needed.

Presented in conjunction with the current exhibit, In Struggle: Asian American Acts of Resistance (on display until February 15, 2015).
