Join us for an evening with Valarie Kaur! 

Valarie Kaur is a renowned civil rights leader, lawyer, award-winning filmmaker, educator, innovator, and best-selling author of SEE NO STRANGER. She leads the Revolutionary Love Project to reclaim love as a force for justice. Valarie burst into American consciousness in the wake of the 2016 election when her Watch Night Service address went viral with 40 million views worldwide. Her question “Is this the darkness of the tomb – or the darkness of the womb?” reframed the political moment and became a mantra for people fighting for change.

Learn more about Valarie here!

Valarie will offer a lecture on her book, See No Stranger, followed by a reception and book signing. Light refreshments will be provided. 

Registration is free but required.
