One World Ideas x Action Book Club

Featuring SEE NO STRANGER by Valarie Kaur

January 7, 2021 in Virtual Event

Revolutions don’t only happen in grand, public moments, but in the space where a critical mass of people come together to inhabit a new way of being.

Join Valarie Kaur, civil rights lawyer, award-winning filmmaker, founder of The Revolutionary Love Project, and author of See No Stranger in conversation with One World editor-in-chief Chris Jackson on Thursday, January 7, 2021. Together they will explore how we, as individuals and as a nation, can begin the labor of reckoning, reimagining, and healing our nation. We each have a role to play and we will only succeed if we choose to show up with love.

This One World Ideas x Action Book Club event is an opportunity for readers to come together and discuss Valarie Kaur’s book and their thoughts on activism, awakening, and the possibility of reclaiming love as an active, public, and revolutionary force. For those of you who have not had a chance to read See No Stranger, we suggest watching Valarie’s conversation with CNN’s Van Jones and Chris Jackson as a quick refresher.

We are thrilled to partner with the Revolutionary Love Project and their new initiative, the People’s Inauguration. Scheduled for January 21, 2020, this massive, collective moment will bring together people from all walks of life to recommit to each other and the project of building a multiracial, multicultural nation. Details can be found here.

The One World Ideas x Action Book Club asks readers to reflect on how we can transform the spirit and ideals of these texts into actionable change in the real world.
