Daring to Stand Up (2015)

Daring to Stand Up was a performance lecture given as the 2015 William Penn Lecture for the Philadelphia Yearly Meeting (Quaker).

Event Description:

A look at the news tells us something is shifting. Within two months, we had the 400,000 strong Peoples Climate March in New York City to the uprising against injustice in Ferguson. Today many people have followed that “still small voice” through the storm toward new ground. What is possible in this moment?
This time calls for us to find the abundant resource around us every day. Taking lessons from the social movements, the arts, and physics, Matthew will walk through contemporary sources of inspiration that illuminate the opportunity to reconnect reflection and action. This William Penn Lecture is an invitation to bring yourself more fully into this moment as a ripple in the tide.
