“See No Stranger: A Journey into Revolutionary Love” an Evening with Valarie Kaur

Valarie Kaur, celebrated civil rights attorney and activist, filmmaker, and author, will speak at AHCC. Come hear Valarie’s compelling message that love is the call of our times, a radical, joyful practice that extends in three directions: to others, to our opponents, and to ourselves.

Valarie Kaur, celebrated civil rights activist and attorney, filmmaker, and author will speak at AHCC on the theme of her book, See No Stranger: A Journey into Revolutionary Love, where she explores the question of a dark future and asks, Is this the darkness of the tomb—or the darkness of the womb?  Kaur explains how the present moment in history is one of transition, and calls on us to show up in the labor of birthing a beloved community. Through her renowned storytelling and teaching, Valarie will help us explore how Revolutionary Love can transform our lives from the inside out.

Following her talk, attendees are invited to a reception where Valarie will sign books, offering a unique opportunity to engage with the celebrated author.
