“Where, after all, do universal human rights begin? In small places, close to home — so close and so small that they cannot be seen on any maps of the world.” – Eleanor Roosevelt

The Eleanor Roosevelt Center, in partnership with TMI Project and National Park Service and Val-Kill National Historic Site, is proud to present WHERE HUMAN RIGHTS BEGIN: True Storytelling from Small Places, Close to Home.

This four-part series is a social justice/human rights-focused program that engages the power of true storytelling and open dialogue to ignite human connection and inspire action for positive social change. In honor of Women’s History Month, our first topic is “Storytelling is Social Justice: Women’s Rights Are Human Rights.”

The program will include a TMI Project true storytelling performance with intimate stories from the front lines of our shared experience as women—and as human beings. It will be followed by a panel conversation and Q&A, after which all are invited to participate in a TMI Project true storytelling workshop. No writing experience is required; just a willingness to listen mindfully and to write the truth of your lived experience.

Advanced registration required; 18 and older, please.

Registration is now closed. Please join us for our next event in June; check back here for details.
