A Community Conversation About Environmental Racism

March 31 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm
Free

SAVE THE DATE!

Sunday, March 31st,, 5:00 – 6:30, Metcalf Hall, Winchester Unitarian Society, 478 Main St., Winchester MA 01890

Inspired by the UUA’s Common Read, “Justice on Earth: People of Faith Working at the Intersection of Race, Class and the Environment,” we will hold a community program and conversation about environmental racism (the ways in which degradation of the earth and the marginalization of people-of-color and other communities are connected.)

As this program is part of our youth group’s (WUSYG’s) preparation for their climate justice service trip, the program will be intergenerational. Participants from outside the WUS congregation are warmly and heartily encouraged to attend.

Questions? Ideas? Contact Sam Wilson, Patty Shepard or the ministry team.

You are encouraged but definitely not required to sign out and read a copy of “Justice on Earth” from the Michelsen Room at WUS in advance of March 31st. Many thanks to Growth and Learning Committee for making these books available to borrow for a week or two!

Some Background on Our Community Wide Conversations:

Members of the Winchester Unitarian Society voted on January 7, 2018 to “affirm our continuing commitment to racial justice by publicly displaying on church property a sign or banner that reads: ‘Black Lives Matter’.” You may want to take a further look at the information about our commitment, which you can find online here.

This event is free and open to the public. Please join us!
