This year, the Social Justice Center is doing things differently to respond to these troubling times. Our usual Winter Potluck has been expanded into a panel & community discussion around Survival, Community and Resistance in a time of trouble.
Our community is responding to the dangers of a Trump presidency using the experience and resources developed through years of community-building, organization-building, and action against white and male supremacy, homo- and transphobia, gender-based violence, economic injustice, mass incarceration, police violence, war, and other forms of injustice and oppression.
Bring a Friend! Bring a Dish! Bring ideas to share with your community. There will be a small silent auction.
We have a great panel lined up of folks across generations!
