The Power of the Powerless

Susan Stefan, J.D., NARPA Vice-President

We live in a world in which suffering and injustice are commonplace and accepted. Many of us have chosen to spend our lives opposing structures of force and power that create suffering and injustice on both social and individual levels. Our feelings of powerlessness exhaust us and diminish our efforts. This talk examines the question of how we--as people who often enter into this work already wounded, damaged, and struggling against these conditions ourselves--can survive, resist and transform this world, by looking at the ways in which others who have resisted and transformed their own worlds of blood and force and injustice have accomplished their goals, and the lessons to be learned from them.
