How do our concepts of trauma and violence matter today? What does it mean to be safe in times of exposure? Is there an iteration of forgiveness that is a political refusal to reinscribe the conditions that needed forgiving? Are there limits to saying sorry?

Join us December 1, 2022 (8:00 AM - 9:30 AM PST / 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM ET / 5:00 PM - 6:30 PM CET) for the Democracy & Belonging Forum’s next event in the ongoing series the Edges in the Middle, where V (formerly known as Eve Ensler, award-winning author of The Vagina Monologues) and Global Senior Fellow Bayo Akomolafe will explore 'Congo' - not merely as a country in Central Africa and site of V's "City of Joy", but as a useful metaphor to explore contemporary politics. In a time when things are heating up (quite literally), V and Bayo will examine and discuss trauma, forgiveness, restoration, healing, safety, and a politics that goes beyond.
