In a live taping for the new #HealMeToo Festival Podcast, Festival Founder and Artistic Director Hope Singsen will discuss activism as a mode of healing in our lives and in our culture with two phenomenal guests.

In 2014-15, Emma Sulkowicz’s Mattress Performance (Carry That Weight) and direct action-activism at Columbia University spurred global headlines and rallied students nationwide to demand better sexual violence policies.

Jerin Arifa is a formerly undocumented activist who is changing millions of lives. Jerin spearheaded the sexual harassment, assault, domestic violence and anti-stalking policy for the third largest university in the US—while undocumented! A movement-builder, Jerin now trains activists across the U.S. as the Founder of the National Organization for Women’s (NOW) inaugural virtual chapter, Young Feminists and Allies.
