Panel of Inspiring Women

Group 14

Molly Woerner

The panel on media justice was led by Jasmine and Arethra from the Women Of Color For Systemic Change. Their lively personalitys balance well with the inspiring and empowering panel guests. All six members, Harmony, Lola, Denae, Sharon, Jackie, and Star experienced thel interplay of social injustice and the media. Their personal stories and encounters were riveting. Star’s personal story of human trafficking was moving. For she described her journey as one that allows her to share with others for those who cannot speak. At a young age music spoke to her and moved her. She sang the song “Somewhere Over The Rainbow” as one that “bite her”. When she sang I felt chills. This to me was an example of how music changes people’s lives and speaks to them to build community.
