MALA is honored to participate at KEAN University’s upcoming conference, “Ending Legal Injustices Through Art and Activism” on December 5th. We will be spotlighting the power of story-telling to discuss advocacy and solutions pertaining to women’s rights, including child marriage, hindrance of education, female genital mutilation, and forced marriage.
Using artworks from The Art of Influence: Breaking Criminal Traditions exhibition in the Human Rights Institute Gallery with the Holocaust Resource Center at Kean University as a foundation for dialogue, the Ending Legal Injustices conference will examine critical issues of human rights violations that are still legal in the United States and abroad. Speakers include New Jersey State Senator Raymond J. Lesniak and other change makers from local and national organizations.
FREE and open to the public. Teachers are encouraged to bring their students. Conference includes light breakfast, lunch and professional development certificates for educators.
