Learning Courage hosted a virtual event on January 12, 2021. The theme of this event was Resilience. This theme resonated for all of us at that time because we were approaching a year in the grips of the COVID-19 global pandemic. Everyone was fatigued from all the restrictions and losses that came with the pandemic. And yet resilience represented something we all felt connected to. We needed more of it and yet we all had to demonstrate it. And resilience is a significant part of our work at Learning Courage. Our goal is to support and promote resilience in schools by providing tools that reduce sexual assault and minimize trauma for those who have been harmed.
We were honored to have Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter MILCK, join us to share her music. After a video of her song “Quiet” sung at the 2017 Women’s March went viral, echoing around the world, it was named Billboard’s #1 protest song of the year, earned distinction as part of NPR’s “American Anthem” series and brought MILCK to New York City, where she performed alongside the legendary Yoko Ono. Her latest song of social change “Somebody’s Beloved” was written after hearing Breonna Taylor’s mother, Tamika Palmer, speaking about her daughter’s life.
