STAND: An Evening with Kathryn Bertine
What really happens when we stand on the front lines of change? Join us for an in-depth discussion with author, activist, filmmaker and former professional athlete Kathryn Bertine as she shares her story of activism in lobbying for women’s inclusion at the Tour de France. With honesty, vulnerability, history, humor, and irreverence, STAND delivers a poignant message to people from all walks of life: We all have the power to create change. When we do it right, the struggle is worth the journey.
