Radical Permission: 

Acts of Liberation for a Safe(r) World 

Thursday, November 3, 2022 | 1:00 PT / 2:00MT / 3:00CT / 4:00ET 

Join us for Radical Permission: Acts of Liberation for a Safe(r) World, a 90-minute conversation with Sonya Renee Taylor and adrienne maree brown


This discussion is framed for advocates, activists, and organizers from movements against gender-based violence. Together, we will address how to tap into transformative practices that interrupt self-denial, scarcity, and harm-replication. This conversation will explore how to give ourselves permission to be our most whole, authentic, and divine selves. Our permission can allow our movements, as well as the many survivors we serve, to reclaim power, self-determination, and vibrance.


To practice waging liberation, we can offer ourselves the radical permission to wholly live our lives – including the work we engage in – rooted in our deepest YES. The YES that restores our divine nature, opening up a ripe potential for us to foster freedom.  When we give ourselves increasing permission to practice freedom in real-time, we get closer to living in a world without gender-based violence. We inherently deserve a safe(r) world.
