“Beyond The Binary” Tuesday, June 28th at 7pm PT / 10pm ET

An In-depth conversation on what freedom means to those who have liberated themselves from the Gender Binary. How do we as a country change the scope of what we think of gender? We’ll dive deeper on topics such as advocacy and intersectionality.

Moderator is Gaven Trinidad (they/them), the Community Engagement Associate at New York Theatre Workshop and a member of TCG’s Rising Leaders of Color 2021-2022 cohort. Guests are: Jairo Rivas "Rosay" (they/them), Ianne Fields Stewart (she/her/they/them), and Roger Q. Mason (they/them), the playwright of the upcoming "Lavender Men".

“Storytelling is Medicine: Pathways to Healing Indigenous Peoples' Transgenerational Trauma” Tuesday, July 12th at 7pm PT / 10pm ET

A panel of indigenous artists speak on what it takes to heal trauma from the history of  colonization. Tune in on our conversation when we’ll discuss the stories being told about indigenous people, and why who tells those stories is essential to knowing the  truth.  (Note: Previously scheduled for July 5. Date was changed to accommodate participants. Viewing link is the same.)

Moderator, Georgina Lightning (she/her), is an actor, an award-winning filmmaker, an advocate for women and Native American’s involvement in film, and is a co-founder of Tribal Alliance Productions. Kalani Queypo, Kairyn Potts and Michael Uribes will on the panel.


Cancelled: “On Surviving" Tuesday, June 21st

Due to participant availability, the panel has been cancelled.

History:
The panel series, offered in celebration of Juneteenth, was created by Tyree Marshall and Celia Mandela Rivera in 2021 to honor and uplift the voices of marginalized communities, recognizing that we all must be liberated in the fight for freedom. The panels serve as conversations amongst those voices by providing them space to speak on their experiences, needs, and hopes for the future.

Juneteenth is the longest running African-American holiday, celebrating freedom of enslaved people at the end of the Civil War in the United States. Although the Emancipation Proclamation became effective in 1863, it was not immediately enforceable in areas still under Confederate control. Union troops arrived in Galveston, Texas on June 19, 1865, announcing that over 250,000 enslaved Black Americans were freed in the state of Texas. Juneteenth became a federal holiday in 2021.  

The online series is designed to bring people together, create connection and expand understanding.
