About The Event
In a world that’s increasingly polarized, and in a culture where dehumanization has become the norm, we frequently find
ourselves responding in one of two ways: fight, or flight.
But what if there was another path? What would it take to confront injustice without internalizing our outrage?
Simran is also the host of the new show, Becoming Less Racist: Lighting a Path to Anti-Racism, as well as the podcast
Spirited, which explores how leaders from marginalized groups think about and navigate justice work. Simran is also the author of Fauja Singh Keeps Going, a new picture book biography about the oldest person to ever run a marathon. It is the first-ever children’s book from a major publisher – Penguin Random House – to center on a Sikh character. Simran is also writing an adult non-fiction book for Penguin Random House on cultivating empathy and connection in our tumultuous world.
