In the spirit of helping often, Sejal H Patel will speak on The Distance Between Us and Justice.
How far away are we from justice?
That question carries many meanings. We can think about time. How much time it will take before events like wrongful convictions and civil rights violations won't happen anymore? We can think about distance.
Life here in Silicon Valley is geographically far away from places like Selma, Baltimore, and Charleston. We can feel grateful, guilty perhaps but grateful, that what we are reading about in the news is not happening to us. We care about injustice, but we can't do much about it.
Or can we? This talk will explore our proximity to justice - how close we are to it, and what we can do to resist what has been a stubborn undercurrent of our democracy since its inception.
