Elders for Social Justice – Community Conversation & Action
Oct 28 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am PDT
Fourth Thursday of each month
9:00 – 10:30 am PT / 12:00 – 1:30 pm ET
There will be no meeting October 28 of the ESJ Community Conversation and Action. Instead, the content will be postponed to November 18, 2021. At that time we’ll complete Lesson 4 of the ACLU course, Racism in Policing. The course has helped us understand the problems associated with violence in American policing. We’ll continue with efforts to design actions to help local communities reconfigure their social safety networks, to promote lower violence and racial equity while raising effective support for the mentally ill, addicted and homeless communities.

Once you’ve registered for the fall series, you’ll receive your unique link for joining all the meetings, and a reminder the day before each meeting through December. And there’s more.
Elders for Social Justice meets in two sessions each month, on the third and the fourth Thursdays, in order to dive deep into our topic and to make sure we have adequate time to listen, discuss and take action. We call the third-Thursday series the Curious Listening Initiative and the fourth-Thursday series the Community Conversation & Action. We hope you’ll join us for both series.
