It’s Time to Act: Four-Act Forum Series
Act Four: Racism and Sexism: Revealing the Intersectionality, featuring John Biewen
The goal of eliminating racism is within our reach. It begins with conversation, and it’s propelled by action.
Join YWCA Minneapolis in its mission to break through the barriers that perpetuate racism. The inaugural It’s Time to Act! is a four-act forum series that will empower participants to engage in deeper conversations around race, equity, faith and social justice issues. You will hear from experts who will inspire you to intentionally take action on equity issues in your surrounding community.
Honest conversations about race allow us to find common ground and develop trusting relationships that make it possible to move toward a more equitable community together. The experts brought together for It’s Time to Act! have dedicated their work to fueling these conversations. They’ll lead the way for attendees to create a step-by-step action plan as part of a cohort or as an individual.
This forum features John Biewen, an audio program director at the Center for Documentary Studies (CDS) at Duke University, and host and producer of the CDS podcast Scene on Radio. His documentary work has taken him to 40 American states and to Europe, Japan, India and has appeared on NPR, This American Life, and the BBC World Service, among other radio outlets and podcasts. He teaches audio to undergraduate, graduate and continuing education students at CDS.
