Chanel Miller reclaims her identity, finding strength in survival

In 2016, "Emily Doe" wrote a victim impact statement for a Californian courtroom that has been read by 18 million people around the world. Its courage and grace demanded a reckoning with the profoundly inadequate ways that sexual assualt is dealt with on campus and in courtrooms, and exposed a hypocricy and double standard in the treatment of offenders. Now, in a brilliant memoir called Know my Name, artist and writer Chanel Miller delivers an honest and powerful account of resiliance, power and transcendence, and, importantly, takes ownership of her own story and identity. Be part of this extraordinary session that will shift the way we think about assault and victimhood.
