Elders for Social Justice – Curious Listening Initiative
Jun 17 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am PDT
Third Thursday of each month
9:00 – 10:30 am PT / 12:00 – 1:30 pm ET
We’re emerging from a tumultuous year for social justice issues and it’s time we take stock of members’ impressions and assessments. What have we learned from George Floyd’s murder, the Black Lives Matter protests that followed, and the conviction of the police officer who killed him? How have the COVID-19 pandemic, the presidential election and the January 6th insurgency affected you and your community? Have you been touched by how the current US immigration system handles the thousands of refugees and immigrants requesting entry? What does earth justice have to do with social justice? And what about the US prison system? What do you want to say and learn about those issues, and how shall we move forward at Elders for Social Justice? Come share your thoughts and listen to each other to engage in this conversation. (This will be our only planned ESJ meeting in June.)
Please register in advance for this meeting here. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
