The FIVE HABITS of SPEAKING JUSTICE
Miriame Cherbib is an anti-racist educator. She founded Speaking Justice to help organizations and people of all ages and backgrounds to build the skills needed to use their voice for justice in everyday life.
Miriame is Tunisian, French and American. She grew up in France, in a community of human rights activists.
After a Masters degree in International Economics, she worked at the French National Research Institute on the Economics of Climate Change and helped design and organize a national dialogue on the development of renewable energies.
For the last five years, she has been teaching French and Francophone cultures at Five Acre School in Sequim and has developed an elementary level anti-racist curriculum. She is the conceptor of the Five Habits of Speaking Justice and facilitates workshops for educators and parents who want to integrate the principles of social justice into their everyday lives and practice them with children.
The Five Habits of Speaking Justice were born from working with students and opening their minds to the diversity of cultures in the world. In doing so, Miriame realized that a set of skills is needed not just to reach respect for difference but also to stand up and speak up when that respect is absent. She created the Five Habits as a way to practice using our voice to respond to injustice and in particular racism. The Five Habits are a concrete, doable approach to being our best self, especially in difficult situations.
On Thursday November 19th, Miriame will share the story behind the creation of the Five Habits and the work she is doing to bring them to schools and families. The presentation will be followed by a discussion on the importance and the challenges of using our voice for social justice in everyday life.
