Our social media feeds are cluttered with unending news of impending legislation, policy rollbacks, and vociferous attacks on BIPOC, transgender, queer, and disabled people. So-called “anti-woke” schooling efforts have resulted in the dismantling of DEI infrastructures in numerous universities and school districts, alongside statewide adoptions of right-wing curricula that reinvents histories on race and racism in the U.S. Anti-trans actors have successfully lobbied for bans on gender-affirming care and have spearheaded campaigns that target all domains of trans life, ranging across access to bathrooms, medicine, sports, and learning. Our home institutions have declared the COVID-19 pandemic to be over, all while immunocompromised, chronically ill, and disabled people continue to die.

In the midst of this onslaught, how do we survive, much less maintain optimism? This roundtable and workshop considers digital storying as a means for maintaining and amplifying community.

This event will be held on Zoom. We want to make our events accessible to all participants. CART services will be provided. If you anticipate needing accommodations to participate, please email Giselle Mills at
