VOW Panel at the Bay Area Book Festival
Amplifying Unheard Voices: Voice of Witness Editors on Social Justice Storytelling
In a climate where our news feeds are saturated with reports on the injustices occurring in our country and around the world, how can journalists and writers foster a deeper engagement with important issues that might seem abstract, distant, or simply too big to take on?
Voice of Witness is a non-profit oral history book series and education program that amplifies the unheard voices of people most directly impacted by injustice. The editors on this panel come together to discuss their experiences using oral history to illuminate stories from inside women’s prisons, the West Bank and Gaza, and more.
