Elder Activists for Social Justice
Community Conversation

Third Thursday of each month
9:00 – 10:30 am PT / 12:00 – 1:30 pm ET

We participate together over Zoom video conferencing in a lightly-facilitated, educational and interactive conversation. We have time to deep dive into our topics using an Elder and social justice lens…always provocative, meaningful and community-oriented.

We began over three years ago by looking at issues related to racism, white privilege, wealth inequality and Islamophobia, and have recently studied Native peoples’ history, reconciliation and the moral voice of an Elder. Each month’s topic grows from the previous month’s and the interests of those attending.

Approximately two weeks before each meeting we may post resources about our subject which include relevant readings, videos, articles, and introspective questions. Our meeting format is participatory, and everyone has a chance to interact and share. ALL ARE WELCOME.

Our next EASJ Community Conversation will be on
Thursday, September 19
9:00 – 10:30 am PT / 12:00 – 1:30 pm ET

ACTIVISTS TAKE ACTION to Reunite Immigrant Children with their Families

Elder Activists for Social Justice have examined the past and current situations around child detentions at the southern US border. We’ve educated ourselves about how very young as well as older children are being held in unsafe and unsanitary conditions, separated from their families and kept longer than the 20 days the Flores Agreement allows. We’ve examined the underlying profit and political motives for creating such situations and identified a variety of actions we can take to stop the detention and separation of children from their parents as they apply for immigration into the United States.

In our September meeting members will choose from our compiled list of actions and organizations we can ally with to create effective change. We’ll create a process for follow-up and reporting the progress of our actions as well as any changes in the system we’re protesting. Join us and be prepared to become peaceful warriors for social justice.
