The Truth Telling Project
The Truth Telling Project implements and sustains grassroot, community-centered truth-telling processes to amplify our voices about structural violence. We share stories, facilitate healing, support activist on the ground, educate, and seek justice.
Structural Violence refers to systematic ways in which social structures harm or otherwise disadvantage individuals -
it is subtle, often invisible, and often has no one specific person who can or will be held responsible.
We are a not-for-profit organization under the sponsorship of the NEIU Foundation.
Aurora Harris is a Detroit, Michigan based award winning published poet; water rights activist and Co-founder of We The People of Detroit ; advocate for students with special needs; Coordinating Committee Member of Detroit Independent Freedom Schools; President of the Michigan Chapter of the Filipino American National Historical Society; and Lecturer ll in Literature, Philosophy, and Arts, and, African and African American Studies.
