Voices Against Violence, with the generous support of Inlandia Institute seeks to contextualize the impact of violence through a humanities framework by providing a program that supports reflection, conversation, and self-empowerment, highlighting the personal experience of individuals affected by violence in the community of San Bernardino County and two of its outlying cities, Redlands and Riverside. San Bernardino is still healing from the 2015 Dec. 2 terror attack, and the 2017 North Park Elementary School shooting. Other incidents of violence including domestic abuse and police brutality are also unfortunately still prevalent. Writing workshops and a culminating public exhibition will be utilized to allow individuals impacted by violence the opportunity to have their voices heard.
This project was made possible with support from California Humanities, a non-profit partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities. Visit www.calhum.org.
