The Lora M. Robins Speaker Series Presents: The Power of Narratives for Social Change Presented by Leadership Metro Richmond and the Robins Foundation What's in a story? Can stories empower and influence communities? At the core, people use stories to understand the world and our place in it. But stories do more than describe the way things are. When advocacy and authenticity are incorporated, those stories challenge systemic inequities and create social change. If we want to transform society, WE MUST share new narratives that recognize and celebrate the value of ALL people. Join us for session one of a two-part series with nationally-known thought leaders sharing their experiences and perspectives on the power of narratives to create social change. Finding Your Activism and Turning the Political into the Personal Angie Thomas, author of the #1 New York Times bestseller "The Hate U Give" Presentation to be followed by a panel of local activists and advocates
