TEDxLincoln Salon: Getting serious about equality - setting the foundation for sustainable change

Learn how Lincoln native Brooke Mullen moved to Thailand at the age of 23 to begin her MA in Human Rights. After a year of living in rural Thailand, she found herself studying, working at the United Nations Inter-agency Project on Human Trafficking and starting a fashion brand, Sapahn, to empower rural Thai artisans.

Sapahn, meaning bridge in Thai, produces high-quality fashion accessories for socially conscious consumers. Saphan is a human rights-based brand where equality is at the center of everything they do.

What is equality? Please consider these questions in preparation for this salon:

  • How do my own beliefs play into the way I judge others?
  • How do we address economic inequity and bigotry in our own community, as well as other places?
  • How does compassion play into equality?
  • How do we allow people to tell their own stories and rise above their situation?


  • 5:30 PM Doors Open
  • 6:00-7:30 PM Presentation by Brooke Mullen and showing of a related TEDx video.

Tickets are $5 each.
