Unity March Against White Supremacy

Location: Washington DC

Let us come together as a nation to state that we are united as a people against White Supremacy.

We will not stand for leaders in Congress that fail to challenge President Trump when he 'winks and nods' to a racist base of support. We will not stand for leaders that would cynically sacrifice the good of the country, the safety of its people, for the sake of a legislative agenda.

We will not stand idly while our fellow Americans are condemned to a new age of fear and trepidation that the nation they owe their allegiance to will not ensure their ability to walk freely without expectation of persecution or the threat of violence.

We will not stand for the lingering (and expanding) institutional injustice that has and continues to pervade every corner of the American life.

All of this nation's greatest accomplishments have been the (often only part-way) rectification of the sins of our history. It is time for us to go the whole way.

I ask you to stand with me, with the majority of this nation, against the tyranny and terror of institutional racism, antisemitism, and the hate that exists across this land...once and for all.

Author Sharon Delgado: Love In A Time of Climate Change

Author Sharon Delgado: Love In A Time of Climate Change

Hosted by The Open Book

671 Maltman Dr, Grass Valley, California 95945

(530) 273-4002  info@theopenbookgv.com

Local Reverend Sharon Delgado is an ordained United Methodist minister, activist, and professional speaker who leads seminars and workshops and speaks before spiritual communities and secular audiences on issues related to globalization, climate change, economic and environmental justice, and peacemaking. In her recent book, Love in a Time of Climate Change: Honoring Creation, Establishing Justice, Delgado inspires action toward personal and social transformation. Her goal is to motivate people to join in the struggle to create a peaceful, just, and environmentally sustainable world. Delgado will read from and sign copies of her book at the Open Book, 671 Maltman Drive on Sunday, November 5 at 3pm. This event is free to the public. 

Love in a Time of Climate Change: Honoring Creation, Establishing Justice, challenges readers to develop a faithful response to climate change, which disproportionately harms the poor, threatens future generations, and damages creation. Her book creatively uses scripture, tradition, reason, and experience to explore the themes of creation and justice in the context of climate change. 

Bill McKibben, founder of 350.org, author of The Comforting Whirlwind: God, Job, and the Scale of Creation says, “This book is an act of witness, and a powerful one. It reminds us that if church is going to mean anything in a time of rapid climate change, it’s going to have to take on this toughest of all questions.”

Russell Brutsché is a singer/songwriter and artist who worked with Delgado during the early 2000s while she was on staff at the Resource Center for Nonviolence in Santa Cruz.  
Active since the sixties in Bay Area folk clubs, Brutsché toured with the band Julienne. Now rebounding as solo songwriter, he recently released a new CD, Bucket of Gold. His painting of a flooded Santa Cruz, which appears on the cover of Delgado’s book, will be displayed at the event, and he will have CDs and numerous prints available for purchase. 

Refreshment will be available for purchase at the Open Book.

Daughter and Mother Camp Congress for Girls San Francisco II 2017

by Girls in Politics Initiative™

$110 – $260

888 Howard Street, San Francisco, CA 94103

Daughter and Mother Camp Congress for Girls San Francisco II 2017 is a leadership program that introduces girls ages 8 to 15 and their moms (or dads) to politics. Camp begins with a lesson on the structure of our political system. Each girl will choose to run for a seat in the US House of Representatives, the US Senate or for the presidency. Each mom will serve as her daughter's campaign manager. Together, daughter and mother will create a political campaign with a platform, campaign slogan, campaign finance plan, campaign marketing materials and a political ad for television. All campers and moms will register to vote and then vote in an election. Once elected to Congress and sworn in, the newly installed members of Congress will learn how to introduce a bill, debate the merits of the bill, lobby fellow legislators, collaborate with the Executive branch and finally vote on the proposed bill. Moms will serve as House, Senate and White House aides assisting daughters in their work. Camp will culminate with a ceremonial signing of the bill by our Ms. President. During the camp session the campers and moms will meet an elected official or political consultant. Girl Scouts participating in Daughter and Mother Camp Congress for Girls San Francisco will earn a Citizen Legacy Badge upon complete of the program. All participants will earn a Certificate of Completion for participation.

The camp day runs from 8am to 5pm. The camp fee includes two GIP logo t-shirts, snacks and all supplies for camp activities. Lunch will be provided for campers and moms. No refunds will be given for camp registration fees unless the organizer cancels or reschedules the session. The camp general registration fee is $260, Girl Scout registration fee is $220 and the group registration fee is $220. The ticket covers one parent and one child. For additional information contact us at +1 (202) 660-1457 ext 2, via email at info@girlsinpolitics.org or visit www.girlsinpolitics.org.

Webinar: Gentrification & Displacement: Stories from St. Louis to Jerusalem

Webinar: Gentrification & Displacement: Stories from St. Louis to Jerusalem

The connections between the dehumanization Palestinians experience under Israeli apartheid and that experienced by Black and brown communities targeted by US institutional racism and discrimination have become clearer than ever.

Marginalization, institutionalized discrimination, and entrenched inequality are experienced every day by both Black Americans and Palestinian citizens of Israel.  The US Campaign for Palestinian Rights is committed to challenging oppressive structures that sustain injustice anywhere, because challenging militarization and injustice abroad is incomplete without confronting and dismantling those systems at home in the United States.  We stand against all forms of racism and bigotry.

“Together We Rise: Palestine as a Model of Resistance” is our 2017 political education campaign to provide critical voices, context, and resources to strengthen liberation struggles from the U.S to Palestine.

Sign up to receive webinar details and other new resources from the unfolding "Together We Rise: Palestine as a Model of Resistance" curriculum.
