Discussion Group

Karen Branan, will give a presentation on “Wise Activism.”  Karen will talk about how her inner work has informed her work as an activist for racial justice. While Karen will talk about her particular experience as an activist for racial justice, her presentation will look at how we all can become wiser, more mindful activists in any domain we may be called to address such as climate change or more local social justice issues.  Karen’s emails quote Ida B. Wells, a wise activist who wrote that “the way to right wrongs is to turn the light of truth on them.


Karen Branan is a veteran journalist who has written for newspapers, magazines, the stage, and television for almost fifty years. Her work has appeared in Life, Mother Jones, Ms., Ladies’ Home Journal, Good Housekeeping, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, and on various television networks.
