In its mission to elevate the voices from within our vibrant community, WEspeak provides Oxnard College students a platform to share their personal stories. With a common thread of honesty, strength and resiliency, these counter stories challenge and reframe the dominant, often harmful narrative with both poignancy and relevance. In the spirit of community, empowerment and a shared humanity, we invite you to come be inspired and moved through the power of storytelling. All are welcome. We hope to see you there."
