‘Our Bodies Are Not an Apology’
Date / Time
April 21, 2022
2:30 pm - 3:30 pm
Join Campus Advocacy Network at the UIC Women’s Leadership and Resource Center, UIC Disability Cultural Center, and UIC Dialogue Initiative for a conversation about Sonya Renee Taylor’s book, “The Body Is Not An Apology,” centering radical self-love as a tool for dismantling violent systems. We will talk about ways that we can reclaim joy in our bodies; unlearn body shame; and heal from ableism, racism and gender oppression. We invite you to spend an hour with us celebrating how we can construct a more equitable and compassionate world.

Presented as part of Sexual Assault Awareness Month.
