Frequently asked questions

What is the difference between The People’s Inauguration kickoff event and The People’s Inauguration: 10 Days to Activate Revolutionary Love?

The People’s Inauguration is a national movement for change, led by Valarie Kaur. The kickoff event is a symbolic “swearing in” celebration happening around the country the day after the US presidential inauguration, and will feature Valarie, Baratunde Thurston, Ari Afsar, and special guests.

The next day begins The People’s Inauguration: 10 Days to Activate Revolutionary Love, a free online event that will deepen your journey to seed change in the world and ground you in Valarie’s practice of revolutionary love.

How do I get the most out of the event?

The People’s Inauguration is structured to support you in achieving your goals for making meaningful social change by embracing a culture of love. Valarie Kaur will be your guide for the duration of the journey. To make the most of things, we suggest you participate as follows:

Each morning will begin with a teaching and practice session with Valarie to orient us around our common objectives for the day.

After Valarie’s morning teaching, tune in each evening to watch her interview session and Q&A with that day’s guests, who will offer even more insight into activating change through revolutionary love.

Where can I find the daily sessions?

All of the content in The People’s Inauguration will be aired on this page. We recommend you bookmark it and mark your calendar for the kickoff event on January 21, 2021.
