Visual DefinitionBuild A Visual Definition of Social Justice
February 6 through 8

Using paint, magazine and newspaper clippings, people were invited to take a few minutes to create tiles that represented what social justice meant to them using only images, no words. Some tiles featured Louis Brandeis, Harry Potter, or keynote speakers Judy and Eliza Dushku; others were more abstract images representing concepts like equality; one was a visual representation of the old phrase “hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil."

February 7 - February 10

The Brandeis Theater Company performed this compelling drama about a young Palestinian-American woman who searched for her missing brother, a soldier who served in Iraq, in this story that crosses time and space, blending and blurring conflicts from the Vietnam War to the Gulf War. With poetic imagery and language, playwright Naomi Wallace explored the intersection of violence and politics, racism and patriotism, desire and the human heart. Director Janet Morrison said, “The characters represent different backgrounds, cultures and wars, but you can see the common wounds, hope and striving that are alive in all of them.”

Social justice heroWho is your Social Justice Hero? A roundtable lunch discussion

Each audience member identified a social justice hero, ranging from well-known figures (such as Mandela, Gandhi, Martin Luther King) to personal heroes (such as a relative or mentor – often someone who worked quietly but tirelessly). Student-created questions were discussed, such as: “Does your hero admit to flaws? If so, how has that honesty influenced you?” and “What will my social justice legacy be?”

Social MediaUsing Social Media for Social Justice: Ordinary People Can Do Extraordinary Things

The three founders of The Jubilee Project explained how to use social media for social justice, reminding us of the power of stories and visual images to raise awareness and mobilize action. Their main messages were that everybody can be successful in social media if they just go for it, and that simple acts can have tremendous impact.

Story of SelfTelling Your Story to Inspire Action: A Workshop

“Story of Self” is an artful storytelling technique that involves heart as well as facts, focusing on challenges, choices made in response, and outcomes of those choices. Participants practiced shaping their stories into an engaging “Story of Self” to inspire the listener to action, working with their own personal stories about the moments that spurred them to action on social justice. Project Plus One leaders Paul Sukijthamapan ’13 and Sarah Van Buren ’13, among others, shared their own inspiring “Stories of Self.” Quoting Martin Luther King Jr., organizer Leila Pascual ’14 reminded participants that “the opposite of poverty is not wealth, but justice.”

Handling Values-Based Conflicts: A Workshop on Conflict ResolutionValues Based Conflicts

Professor David Steele led this workshop looking at what values might be at the origins of any conflict, with a focus on religious values. Members of a Heller School graduate student panel shared personal experiences about the role of religion within conflicts. Panelists included Jacqueline Okanga (from Uganda), Saoussane Rifai (from Morocco) and Shagufta Shah (from Pakistan), representing different cultures and religious traditions. Attendees were also asked to form a “human barometer” demonstrating what role they feel religion plays within a conflict. Steele mentioned that one of the leaders with whom he worked pointed out, “In some countries, if you take a gift to a tribal leader, it’s a sign of respect. In the USA, if you take a gift to a political leader, it’s a bribe. Yes, there is corruption, but we define it differently.” Identity can be a marker for conflict. Reported Steele: one young Croatian woman said, “At the beginning of the Yugoslav war, I had to ask my mother who we were.”

InventoryInventory: The Artist As Advocate for Social Justice

Imagine going to the library, the Catholic chapel, or the Women’s Studies Research Center (WSRC) and picking up a few AK-47 assault rifles or Glock pistols. Postcards of them, that is. This participatory art installation by WSRC Scholar Linda Bond was a visual representation of the 190,000 weapons that have gone missing in Iraq. Visitors were invited to take one or more of the cards to keep or give away, then record its current location at the artist's website to track the “weapons” as they circulate around the globe. Artist Linda Bond spoke about various artists through history who have been social activists and of the origins of her “Inventory” installation.

Corporations How Corporations Promote Social Justice: Just because it's legal, does it mean it's ethical?

Co-founder of People Magazine Ron Scott spoke about his experiences in the corporate world. He mentioned case studies of “cause-related marketing,” (i.e. “doing well by doing good”), including some problematic examples, like tobacco giant Phillip Morris’s sponsorship of women’s tennis and the performing arts. Respondents Professor Andreas Teuber (PHIL) and Professor Detlev Suderow (IBS) raised intriguing questions like: where morality came from, whether one’s sense of self-interest (particularly corporate self-interest) is at odds with morality, and how to think about practices that are legal but not necessarily ethical. In the end all the panelists urged the audience to think critically and “do the right thing” – even if it’s a hard thing to do.

MidrashJustice, Empowerment, and Creative Midrash

Midrash, or the process of telling a story to better understand the words in the Torah, can underscore the Torah's themes of justice and empowerment. Using ancient sources (the story of Abraham’s binding of Isaac) and modern sources (such as Dan Terris’s blog post with his working definition of social justice), participants discussed their role in recognizing power and privilege and transforming knowledge into action. Finally, each person had the opportunity to portray his/her own story through a creative representation of a vision for social justice.

Show and TellSocial Justice Show & Tell: A Special Exhibit of Rare and Archival Material

A display of archival material relating to student activism at Brandeis throughout the times was displayed, including pictures, news articles, letters and other materials. This exhibit gave exciting insight into Brandeis’ history of social justice-related events and activities with modern resonance, such as materials from the “Brandeis & Apartheid Strike” of April 5, 1979, sponsored by the Brandeis Divestment Coalition, and the 1998 “Passover Seder for Tibet.” Archival material of other major social justice-related historical events was also included in the exhibit, such as material related to Sacco and Vanzetti, Jewish resistance in World War II, the Spanish Civil War, the Leo Frank trial, and Louis Brandeis himself.

IntergenerationalSocial Justice: An Intergenerational Conversation

Brandeis students and members of BOLLI (the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Brandeis) came together for an intergenerational dialogue to discuss many aspects of social justice: its meaning, implications and practices. Discussion questions included “Is the quest for social justice utopian?” and “Was Occupy Wall Street about social justice? Did it do justice?” Excerpts from the documentary play “When Rebellion Becomes Revolution” (see below) were performed and spurred conversations.

STANDSTAND Up Against Genocide!

STAND, an anti-genocide club, screened a video of interviews with various members of the Brandeis community about their thoughts and opinions about genocide. The video project was intended to spread genocide awareness on the Brandeis campus, and to encourage others to take action. High school students from "Poetic Justice," a club at the Cambridge School of Weston (led by high school student Kaela Cote-Stemmermann), performed slam poetry as the opener, followed by Dean Jamele Adams’ rendition of his own slam poetry about genocide.

Life after death rowLife After Death Row: Justice Brandeis Innocence Project Students Talk with Released Inmate Damien Echols, His Wife, His defense Team Adviser, and the Reporter Who Believed Him

Students from the Justice Brandeis Innocence Project at the Schuster Institute for Investigative Journalism asked questions of panelists Damien Echols, a recently released death row inmate, his wife Lorri Davis, his defense team advisor Lonnie Soury, and Erin Moriarty, a reporter from CBS’s 48 Hours. A trailer for West of Memphis, a new documentary about Echols, was shown. Echols spoke of his Buddhist practice of meditation (5-7 hours a day) as one of the factors that got him through his experience. While his case is still controversial, Echols expressed his desire to be “defined by my accomplishments, not by what was done to me.” After the event, Echols signed copies of his book "Life After Death."

Brandeis University’s four chaplains (Catholic, Jewish, Muslim and Protestant) came together to discuss the importance of interfaith cooperation. Through a panel discussion, they explained that while religions may have different customs and rituals, many religions share a similar sense of moral obligation to the greater society. The chaplains mentioned some of the many benefits that come with learning about another religion’s practices, and explained ways in which the Brandeis community specifically supports interfaith efforts, all with the aim of interfaith cooperation to build social justice.

Keynote AddressActress Eliza Dushku and her mother, Suffolk University professor of politics Judy Dushku, spoke about the resilient Ugandans they met on an academic trip with Suffolk University students. The Dushkus’ relationships with these former child soldiers and formerly abducted women led to their philanthropic efforts in Uganda and their therapeutic organization, THRIVE Gulu, which seeks to help them heal from trauma by telling their stories and building their self-sufficiency and self-esteem. The Dushkus reported that many of the participants want Facebook accounts, email addresses, and filmmaking skills so they can tell their stories on their own terms, knowing that being heard is a large part of healing. Ethics Center director Dan Terris moderated the audience Q&A.

GulagGulag Nation: North Korea and Crimes Against Humanity

A screening of the award-winning film Seoul Train, exposing the lives and deaths of North Koreans as they try to escape horrific human rights abuses in their homeland, was followed by a discussion with Dr. Sung-Yoon Lee from Tufts University. Lee pointed out that in every survey since 1972, North Korea comes in dead last as the world’s worst human rights violator. In his talk, Lee correctly predicted the following Sunday’s nuclear testing by North Korea, three days before it happened.

Gendered Violence is EVERYONE'S ProblemGendered Violence

Representatives from the Boston Area Rape Crisis Center, Boston Public Health Commission, Casa Myrna, and Gay Men’s Domestic Violence Project comprised a panel, moderated by Caitlin Feuer from the Heller Gender Working Group. Panelists first spoke briefly about how each organization addresses different aspects of gendered violence. During breakout sessions run by the representative of each organization, topics were explored such as the culture of violence, domestic violence in LGBTQ relationships, and to how to be an ally. Then insights from each breakout were shared with the overall audience. For example, Jenny Efimora of Casa Myrna pointed out, “Society asks ‘why does the victim stay?’ instead of ‘why does the abuser abuse?’ The former question blames the victim, putting the onus on the victim to make change.”

Connecting With Workers: Hear The Stories of Brandeis EmployeesConnecting with Workers

A panel of Brandeis workers, representing a broad swath of positions and number of years at the University, told their stories of their Brandeis work experiences: Crystal Germond, an admissions officer and part-time grad student at Heller (two years at Brandeis); Mayvorly Ramirez, a custodial staff member for seven years; and Jim Rosenbloom, a Brandeis librarian since 1976. They were joined by Harry Grill, from the labor union UNITE HERE. Several unions operate at Brandeis, with separate unions for food service workers, librarians, facilities workers, and public safety employees. Germond called the Brandeis workplace “an ecosystem, where everyone is valued, and where we acknowledge the hard work of everyone who makes the University run.”

When Harry Met Louie: How Harry Potter Inspired a Brandeis StudentAndrew Slack

Andrew Slack '02 spoke about his social justice journey from Brandeis undergraduate to founder of the Harry Potter Alliance (HPA), an internationally-known nonprofit that calls on Harry Potter fans to apply the story's themes to real-world issues of social justice. Slack mentioned his transformative Brandeis experiences, including his Sorensen Fellowship in Northern Ireland, sociology classes with Professor Maurie Stein, and a class with Prof. David Cunningham titled “Possibilities for Change in American Communities,” which included a 30-day bus trip with the 12 students and three instructors, traveling largely in the American South. Slack spoke of the work of HPA as “synthesizing personal stories, collective stories, and fantasy stories in holistic activism for systematic change,” claiming that “fantasy is not an escape from our world, but an invitation to go deeper into it.”
