The panel discussion will take place on Sunday, 11/9, from 10:45am-12pm. The title of the panel is “A beautiful Movement: Building Relationships and Power. This panel will discuss how different types of activism can contribute to a comprehensive human rights movement – be it through art, lobbying, or nonviolent direct action across distinct, yet interconnected, movements.
