Register for this event. Since 2016, Amita has been traveling the country collecting the stories of LGBTQ people of color who survived childhood rape and sexual assault. Her project, Mirror Memoirs, uses storytelling and survivor leadership to illuminate the needs and wisdom of survivors at this vulnerable intersection that has not been widely discussed.

In this talk, Amita will share some of the preliminary findings of nearly 50 interviews publicly for the first time, and will discuss the implications for social entrepreneurs, nonprofits, and philanthropists seeking to solve intractable problems and to strengthen social justice movements.
