Chicago Theological Seminary — Wednesday Reflections with Deepa Iyer
March 10 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Join us in conversation with Deepa Iyer from the Building Movement Project as we explore our roles in advancing social change. We will learn about and apply a framework to better understand how we can show up for social change and how to strengthen the ecosystems that support us. Deepa is a writer, strategist, and activist who works with individuals, organizations, and networks engaged in equity and solidarity.
Deepa Iyer is Director of Strategic Initiatives at Building Movement Project where she builds projects, resources, and narratives that support nonprofits and individuals engaged in transformative movements for progressive social change. Her work includes creating the social change ecosystem map, and directing SolidarityIs, an initiative that trains people through Solidarity Schools, provides narratives via the Solidarity Is This podcast, and fosters multiracial and cross-movement connections. Iyer is a South Asian American writer, lawyer, strategist, and facilitator whose areas of expertise include the post 9/11 America experiences of South Asian, Muslim, Arab and Sikh immigrants, immigration and civil rights policies, and racial equity and solidarity practices.
WEDNESDAY REFLECTIONS continue at CTS through the academic year. Invited speakers, community partners, and members of our community will gather with the intention of putting our faiths into action. Engaged discussion will give space for many voices to share. We come together to inspire, encourage, and challenge one another to use our voices, bodies, and spirits to build the world we believe is possible. Join us.
