Author Valarie Kaur to kick off new CURW speaker series

Author, attorney and filmmaker Valarie Kaur will be the first speaker in a new series from Cornell United Religious Work, “Into and Out of the Echo Chambers,” which seeks to address current societal challenges and to consider how spirituality and humanizing practices might help us meet the moment together.

The virtual talk, “See No Stranger: An Evening with Valarie Kaur,” is scheduled for March 22 at 7 p.m.; the event is free and open to the public but requires registration.

“The idea for this series emerged in the days after the (Jan. 6) insurrection at the U.S. Capitol,” said Oliver Goodrich,  associate dean for spirituality and meaning-making and director of Cornell United Religious Work.
