We are excited to have the Honorable Bukola Oriola guiding discussion! The LDCW extends its gratitute to Dr. Artika Tyner and the Office of Diversity and Inclusion for funding the author's visit. 

Documenting her struggles and triumphs as a survivor of labor trafficking and domestic violence, local author Bukola Oriola hopes to inspire and encourage other survivors to turn their lives around. Oriola also provides practical solutions to the government, service providers, NGOs, and the general public on how to effectively engage with survivors, to value them as the subject matter experts they are. Proceeds from book sales go toward survivors in the U.S., Nigeria and Kenya for education or their businesses.

We will be celebrating the conclusion of our 2017-2018 Book Circle on “Women and Economic Justice” with a potluck. Please join us for conversation and community. Feel free to bring a dish to share!
