Social Justice Sunday [s]
September 17, 2017 @ 11:45 am - 1:15 pm
Are you frustrated and disheartened by recent events in Charlottesville, VA and other cities, and wondering what you can do to combat hate and bigotry?
Join us at Woodinville Unitarian Universalist Church (WUUC) for a Racial Justice Assembly on Sunday, Sept. 17 from 11:45 a.m. – 1:15 p.m.
Reverend Harriet Walden, a Seattle Civil Rights icon, will be our guest speaker. Rev. Walden will discuss the topic, “Racial Justice: Connecting the Dots – How We Got Here and How We Can Move Through It,” while addressing the reality that laws cannot change injustice; people must unite to identify and change injustice in our society.
Rev. Harriett Walden has been a vocal advocate for better police community relations in Seattle since 1990 when she co-founded Mothers for Police Accountability (MFPA). The MFPA educates young people, parents, and others affected by excessive police practices and works with other community organizations to seek positive changes in the criminal justice system. Rev. Walden also founded the Family Empowerment Institute where she acts as Director working in partnership with the Seattle Police and Parks Departments to Break the Silence on Black on Black crime.
WUUC’s Advocates for Social Justice is sponsoring this event and will provide lunch around 11:15-11:30 a.m . Please contact Leslie Schmidt with questions: Les.Schmidt65@gmail.com
