Social Justice SIG

“I can’t believe I never learned this before!” was one of the most common responses among those who participated in our 2020 community read of Isabel Wilkerson’s “CASTE: The Origins of our Discontents.” Inspired by that program, we created this new Social Justice SIG to provide an additional opportunity to dig deeper in our quest to better understand our own American history of systemic racism and its ongoing impact on our society. Through an open discussion of articles, videos and news coverage of timely topics, we will explore the obstacles to achieving social/racial justice as well as possible solutions. Come join friends to share, reflect and learn together how we might become better-educated allies in addressing racism in our daily lives.
