The importance of listening to marginalised voices is immense. There is an abundance of statistics available on marginalisation, but not enough on human stories.
Advocate is a tale of personal resistance, but also a manifesto for action. Lennina is a force of nature. A teen mother, a supportive older sister, a PhD student, a working woman, a survivor, above all, she is an Advocate. She has spent her life working for those who do not have a voice, for those relegated to the margins, and in this book, she lends her voice to them. Lennina opens the door to intersections that are familiar to many: race, class and gender, and uses her expertise to explain and embolden readers to make active change in their own lives.
In this incredibly powerful event, Lennina will be joined by Jeffrey as they dive into the personal experiences they use in their lives now as writers, educators and advocates. Don’t miss the opportunity to watch Lennina and Jeffrey utilise expertise from across the globe, to government reports all in the effort of making topics that are so often ignored accessible to all.
With great candour and wit, Lennina will call you to make change, not just for your own sake, but for those in the margins. Don’t miss this event.
