Join Ruby in conversation with Diego Perez, the writer, thinker, and speaker also known as @yung_pueblo. You may know Diego’s poetry from Instagram. Deceptively simple, his words are deeply impactful, and have recently been compiled into a book, Inward. Diego was heavily involved in activism and organizing in his teens and is a dedicated Vipassana meditator (attending multiple 10-day silent meditation retreats per year). Now, he credits his meditation practice with showing him the missing piece in creating lasting, meaningful, social change. You can discover more about Diego, his book Inward, and all his upcoming events @yung_pueblo.
