Stories Happen in Forests: A Live Storytelling Event

It was a night filled with inspiration for wanderers, stargazers, and defenders alike… On July 27th, SEEC partnered with the Dogwood Alliance to host an evening of storytelling and community-building in the spirit of forest protection and community justice! The event was held in Motorco Music Hall in Durham and featured live speakers with true, personal stories such as:

  • Gary Phillips, poet laureate of Carrboro
  • TC Muhammad, Hip Hop Caucus
  • Dr. Thomas Easley, Forestry professor and Center for Diversity at NCSU
  • Reverend Leo Woodberry
  • Danna Smith, Dogwood Alliance
  • Jodi Lasseter, Climate Justice Program Director, NC LCV
  • BJ McManama, the Indigenous Environmental Network
  • Margaux Escutin, Bear Afficionado and Durham Activist

The event was a huge success and over 300 people attended. SEEC has more events planned with the Dogwood Alliance! Stay tuned for more updates as we continue to get involved with other large organizations!
