Description: Join The Atlantic's Vann Newkirk II and the Hart Leadership Program for a conversation with local and campus scholars, elected officials, and activists about how organizing continues after elections are over. Newkirk will interview panelists whose expertise and background covers activism around sexual violence, healthcare, and criminal justice reform. They will seek to address how organizing around these issues is occurring in North Carolina in 2019. After Newkirk's interview, the audience and other community members will continue the conversation in small groups to discuss ongoing efforts for, and sustained organizing around, the issues of criminal justice reform, access to healthcare, and prevention of sexual violence. Food will be provided.
