About this Event

We are proud to present the Freedom Rising Salon Series from the producers of the Revolutionary Love Conference!

Through this virtual series, we hope to ground exploration of justice issues in rich particularity, while also honoring how the work of liberation builds upon itself. Each month will examine freedom from a different vantage, but the entire series will be organized around how we can rise in fierce love, equipping participants with the tools they need to fight for freedom in their own cultural contexts.

October 20, 7 - 8:30 PM ET - Rising to Indigenous Reparations

In this conversation, we’ll talk about how to move from nominal indigenous reparations, like land acknowledgements, into deeper partnership with native siblings. Jacqui Lewis will be joined in this conversation by Kali Spitzer and Jim Bear Jacobs.

This salon is made possible in part by The Middle Project.

November 17, 7 - 8:30 PM ET - Rising to Fierce Love for Ourselves and the World

Jacqui will be in conversation with Cole Arthur Riley. Cole is the creator of Black Liturgies, a space of dignity, lament, truth-telling, healing, rest, and liberation. Together, she and Jacqui will talk about how rest is integral to self-love, and the foundation for liberatory action.

December 15, 7 - 8:30 PM ET - Rising to A Moral Economy

In this conversation, we’ll explore a variety of policy solutions that could help rebalance economic inequalities and equitable systems for all. Jacqui Lewis will be joined by Jawanza Williams, a Black, radical Queer, Pr*son Abolitionist, Socialist, Community Organizer.

This salon is made possible in part by The Middle Project.

January 19, 7 - 8:30 PM ET - Rising to Beloved Community

This conversation will focus on how we can transform beyond the painful divisions that try to tear us apart, to foster conciliation. We will focus on both the personal and social dimensions of this work, and the practical steps each of us can take to heal what is broken. Jacqui Lewis will be in conversation with Rabbi Danya Ruttenberg.

February 16, 7 - 8:30 PM ET - Rising to Freedom

In this conversation, Rev. Dr. Jacqui Lewis will talk with Black Voters Matter founder LaTosha Brown and poet, artist, and activist Lisa Sharon Harper about what we all can do to demand free and easy access to the ballot. And they’ll examine the lessons learned from organizing efforts in the 2020 election about the best way to encourage our neighbors to make their voices heard.

This salon is made possible in part by The Middle Project.

March 16, 7 - 8:30 PM ET - Rising to Gender Equality

In this conversation, we’ll talk along the fault lines of gender inequality—how we can build new coalitions of all people impacted by patriarchal abuse—to birth a world where everyone is free to live into the fullness of their gender without fearing violence or suffering injustice. Abby Stein will join Jacqui Lewis for this dialogue.

April 20, 7 - 8:30 PM ET - Rising for Mother Earth

In this training, Jacqui Lewis will speak with representatives from Green Faith, an interfaith and international organization that equips religious communities to fight extraction and exploitation. They’ll talk about the pervasiveness of ecological racism—in the U.S. and abroad—and articulate why we must move beyond a lens of individual change to pursue structural solutions.

May 18, 7 - 8:30 PM ET - Rising to Disability Justice

Our justice work is incomplete if it isn’t accessible for all people. Even though most people, at some point in their lives, will become disabled, our communities continue to fail to provide even baseline accommodations for universal access. Jacqui Lewis will be joined by Talila Lewis, an abolitionist community lawyer, educator, and organizer who works to ground all social justice movements in disability justice.

June 15, 7 - 8:30 PM ET - Rising to Divine Queerness

In this conversation, we’ll examine how we come to know God better through LGBTQIA+ people, and the ways queer liberation offers a roadmap to free all people. Jacqui Lewis will be joined by Semler, the first openly queer artist to hit number 1 on the iTunes Christian music charts with their EP, Preacher's Kid.
