intro’d to Tani here:
Tani on connected learning hangout:
finding a way to dream bigger.. than whatever activists are thinking about that issue
it’s really on the level of imagination and encouraging people to continue to dream.. that’s where we’re really going to find exciting and inspiring models of how we can transform society..
love her re-iterations throughout the hangout.. on the blurring of people/issues.. like learning to dance between/with it all..
Tani co-founded immediate justice:
Our mission is to encourage girls to imagine a just world by telling their untold stories of gender and sexuality through film. We believe young women can have a strong and positive impact on their communities if given the tools to amplify their voice.
