Are You Ready to Fix Racism? (or are you still pretending it doesn’t exist?)

Join our campus community and become empowered as damali ayo—activist, speaker and artist—uses her humorous stories and award-winning art to provide practical tools for building better communities. Her creative, pragmatic and satirical approach makes hard conversations about racial justice more accessible. Audience members will receive a copy of damali’s “I Can Fix Racism” guide following her talk.
“The passion damali brings is transformative and turns a simple idea into a movement.” —Al Leston, Host of NPR’s State of the ReUnion
