MEETING EVERY THURSDAY 6:30 - 8:30 PM via ZOOM
Herstory Writers Workshop and the Humanities Institute at Stony Brook University are excited to join forces with our current online writing circle for environmental justice, climate action and hope, as we provide a wider umbrella for stories of that will give a new shape to the healing of our communities, spirits, and land.
We invite you to join climate and human rights activists across the generations, young people writing for their futures, community stake holders and neighborhood elders, young Dreamers and Head Start parents, teachers and health care providers, in a shared writing journey to pave a new way.
Stay tuned for news of our October Harvest event to take place at the plaza in Wyandanch. Featuring a town hall-style story-shaping forum where people from all walks of life will be helped to shape their environmental justice stories Herstory style, leading to a call to action.
Come once or twice, to tell a particular story that needs to be told. Or continue week after week to shape stories for readings, web publications and pop-up events that we are planning in front of farmer’s markets, in community gardens, in front of food stores, at garbage dumps, and on our beaches and public parks.
