Day of Service, Learning & Unity: March for Racial Justice NJ Event
October 1, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Be the change. Create racial justice in our community!
Join us in Trenton on Sunday, October 1, to discuss how to take action to promote racial justice throughout New Jersey and the nation. We will gather in solidarity with our brothers and sisters of color, the Muslim and Jewish communities, the LGBTQ+ community, the immigrant community, and every person targeted by those who would divide us.
The Day of Service, Learning & Unity is a multi-community event supporting the goals of the March for Racial Justice in D.C. Advocates for justice, equality, and peace will speak and facilitate workshops and discussion groups to delve more deeply into the systematic and institutionalized injustices faced by people of color in the U.S.
Learn what you can do to promote racial justice in your community.
Topics will include:
-Racism in the U.S. from a faith community perspective
-The history of white supremacy in America
-Intersectional LGBTQ+ issues
-How to talk to your legislators
-Being undocumented in America
Keynote Speaker: Lawrence Hamm, People’s Organization for Progress
