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.

Here is a link to the list we’ve created over the last several months for actions to take to create positive social justice change.

Our next EASJ Community Conversation will be on
Thursday, January 16
9:00 – 10:30 am PT / 12:00 – 1:30 pm ET

Our January Community Conversation will center on naming and linking systems of social injustice. Since the topic of social injustice is so vast and complex we will begin to discuss it on a very high level and graph it in order to recognize the many components and how they relate to and support one another. Come to the conversation with your own list of social injustices (think age, race, gender/sexual preference, geographic region, residential red lining, nationality, immigration status and history, education, speech patterns, accent, language, wealth and poverty) and expect to be a little surprised by the conversations and systems that emerge.

Is this too big a topic to even begin to define and wrap our minds around? Join the conversation. Speak. Listen. Watch. Let’s see what we can learn together.
