Arjun Singh Sethi, human rights lawyer and community activist, and author of "American Hate: Survivors Speak Out". Judy Tallwing McCarthey, a Native American artist active in the Baltimore community, whose work is currently included in the exhibition alongside Esther Nisenthal Krinitz’s art. Moderated by Cecile Lipworth, a feminist community activist in Santa Fe, radio show host, and Art and Remembrance board member. Introductions by Rebecca Hoffberger, founder and director, AVAM and Bernice Steinhardt, one of Esther's daughters and the president of Art and Remembrance.
