Created by students in the School of Community and Public Affairs, Listening Beyond is an oral history podcast that features changemakers with the goal of learning what it really takes to strive for social justice. In each episode, students speak to notable people in the fight to create a better world: the stories of their beginnings, their education, the causes they hold dear, and the trials and tribulations of their line of work. The aim is to contribute knowledge and inspire lasting change by connecting individual stories to broader social movements.

To mark the launch of Listening Beyond, the culmination of a semester of hard work by students in SCPA 352: Community and Local Activism, this panel will reflect on the possibilities and challenges of learning through this kind of listening. Students will reflect on their experiences and present what they found meaningful, difficult and transformative about listening beyond.

How can you participate? Attend the discussion in person (note, there is a maximum of 25 audience members permitted in the space) or online by registering for the Zoom webinar or watching live on 4th Space's YouTube channel.
