Speaking

Miriam speaking at TEDx DePaul University in April 2012. Her talk was called “Transforming Empathy.”

“[Miriam’s] expertise is so comprehensive and [she] delivers it in such a thoughtful and inspiring, and sometimes even humorous way.  Those of us in the feminist, queer, and reproductive justice movements are ridiculously lucky to have [her].” -Ileana Jimenez
