Una Lee is a proponent of design justice, the idea that those who will be most impacted by a design project should be centered in the design process. To this end, she works collaboratively with communities of marginalized peoples to design tools that they will use in mobilization and liberation. Through storytelling, she will share what has worked well and what hasn’t worked so well, and the impact this work has had on her.
