Speaking Truth to Power is a term coined by Bayard Rustin. One of the leading civil rights activists during the 50s, that is rarely spoken of because is was an out gay man. We will evoke his teachings to learn the power of our own experiences and find strength in our narratives. This workshop will explore how to tap into our own stories and use them to empower ourselves to create change.

Tatjana Rebelle is a mother, activist, organizer, writer, performer and promoter. Indianapolis is where she learned to use her writing to deal with growing up in the midwest as a bisexual, biracial daughter of an immigrant. She is the founder and host of VOCAB. She uses her writing for social justice for communities of color, combating Islamophobia and LGTBQIA+ rights.
