Acharei Kiddush: Chasing Social Justice
November 14, 2020 at 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm
How do we advance the work that matters most? Social justice work, while deeply meaningful and utterly essential, can be confounding; raising many complex questions. Activist and author Laurie Sherman will address these questions in an unusually poignant and accessible way. She will combine lived experience with political analysis and illuminating lessons learned over the past three decades across social justice movements, initiatives, and organizations. Laurie will read some excerpts from her book, Chasing Social Justice and lead us in a discussion about how the lessons can apply to the challenges of today, including the pandemic and our work to address racism.
