[SDCPJ] This Sat 5/30, TWO events!

Two peace/justice related events TOMORROW, Sat. May 30th

Community Conversations (RACE)
Each month the Peace Resource Center is hosting a conversation time to come together to talk about issues in our communities, what we know and can learn, and how we can act to make a better world.

For Sat May 30th, the topic is Race/Racism
from 10 am - 12 noon 
@ PRC, 3850 Westgate Place, 92105

This date, we'll discuss the forum that was held here on May 11 (Black and Brown Lives Matter) and recent race-related happenings across the country, such as Baltimore (Freddie Gray) and Ferguson (Mike Brown). 

We'll explore questions:
- What is our understanding of what is happening?
- What do we know about disparities related to race?
- Why do we care? How does it relate to our communities?
- What change is needed and how can we do it?

For Sat. June 28th, the topic is Immigration and Border Issues, including a debrief about the 6/7 Border Tour some of us will have attended (see below for event info).

Save the dates for the following:
Sat July 25 - topic Spirituality
Sat Aug 29 - topic Militarism
Sat Sept 26 - topic Sustainability

For more info about these monthly conversations, please visit the current facebook event or our website www.prcsd.org
