The New Narrative is currently soliciting speakers for our next major event on the theme of Work/Money. If you have a story to share, we’d love to hear from you. We want to explore this theme from the perspective of Power, Identity, and Perception.
Who we are and how we appear in the world can greatly influence the opportunities for work and money that are available to us. What we do for a living and how much money we make can also influence how the world perceives us and what we think of ourselves. The second of three sub themes we want to explore for the New Narrative event on the theme of Work/Money is Identity. What story ideas do you have for this sub theme?
CZ Firestone, known to their loved ones affectionately as “Syra” or “Sy”, is a writer, intellectual, and youth advocate serving in the community of San Diego in both activist and organizing spaces. Their work centers on the intersections of race, gender, class, sexuality, disability, social and restorative justice
Ozzie Monge is a, among other roles, a Lecturer at San Diego State University in the Department of American Indian Studies. Ozzie’s professional interests focus on the social and political issues deriving from settler colonialism, always with an eye, mind, and heart to aspire towards decolonization.
f you have a moment, we’d like to get some feedback from attendees about what they thought of the event; what worked, what could be improved, etc.
We’re trying something extra for The New Narrative this time around by including a handful of interactive elements to the event. Your participation is encouraged!
We're looking for speakers to share a personal story about Identity in a 10-15 minute talk format. If you have any thoughts on potential speakers, please let me know.
