This event is hosted by Dartmouth Visibility:2021. 20% of all sales of The Body Is Not an Apology (2nd Ed.) from the month of February will be donated to WISE.
In the midst of both a global pandemic and various uprisings against oppressive systems, how are radical self-love and community care crucial tools for a lifelong fight for liberation and justice?
Sonya Renee Taylor (she/her) is the Founder and Radical Executive Officer of The Body is Not An Apology, a digital media and education company promoting radical self-love and body empowerment as the foundational tool for social justice and global transformation.
Sonya’s work as a highly sought-after award-winning performance poet, activist, and transformational leader continues to have global reach. She is a former National and International poetry slam champion, author of two books, educator, and activist who has enlightened and inspired organizations, audiences and individuals across the US, New Zealand, Australia, Germany, England, Scotland, Sweden, Canada and the Netherlands in prisons, mental health treatment facilities, homeless shelters, universities, festivals, and public schools.
Formerly V-February, the Visibility campaign reimagines Dartmouth's annual student-led campaign to promote gender equity and end gender- and power-based violence.
WISE is a local nonprofit that provides crisis advocacy and support for people and communities impacted by domestic violence, sexual violence, and stalking within 21 communities of the Upper Valley of New Hampshire and Vermont.
