FALL 2018
Location:

Paulina’s talk will explore concepts of transformative relationship building in movements, organizations, and among leaders.

What is collective work rooted in the legacies of the South look like?

What does building transformative organizations take?

How do we stay resilient and spiritually grounded in our organizing while centering impact?

Auburn Conversations offer an intimate experience to hear and challenge insights from visionary voices, artists, and uplifting leaders of faith and moral courage from across the cultural spectrum.

“I’ve been organizing in the south for 20 years. I met so many southern people who care deeply about social justice, who care deeply about the legacy of abolitionists in the south.” – Paulina Helm-Hernandez speaking about her work in the south with SONG
