WWAV Executive Director Speaks at Tulane’s Audre Lorde Week

audre lorde week imageWomen With a Vision’s Deon Haywood will be speaking at Tulane University’s second annual Audre Lorde Week. The week is an opportunity for students, faculty, staff, and community members to come together to develop tools for using human difference as a springboard for creative change.

According to the organizers, the experiences planned for the week combine critical analysis and love, lyricism and research, as well as struggle and collaboration (1) to address the ways in which inequity, bias, discrimination, alienation, and violence undermine our individual, collective and planetary health and (2) to develop holistic analyses and strategies for fueling well-being, justice, and positive social change. Central to the week’s events will be a consideration of how students, researchers, faculty, staff, and communities can create meaningful, reciprocal, accountable, and thriving relationships within the context of racism, sexism, heteronormativity, economic disparity, homophobia, transphobia, xenophobia, and town/gown divides.

Deon will be speaking on Friday, February 7th from 12-1PM in Tulane University’s Caroline Richardson building on Newcomb Place near Willow St.
