Lucy’s Children is a community effort to examine the fiction of Race in order to address the fact of Racism. Our plan is to provide information, opportunities and events that can help us come together as a society to end racism. We meet to plan our efforts, to learn together, and to share resources and related experiences.
Members of Brooklyn Ethical and their guests are welcome to join us.
All members of BSEC and their personal guests are welcome at the learning sessions of Lucy’s Children. Non-members are welcome to observe business meetings without direct participation. We are a volunteer membership group convening to be a catalyst for conversations at BSEC as well as in the outside world on Ending Systemic Racism and White Supremacy. We seek to engage in conversations, develop programs, promote personal development, and deepen our interpersonal connections. We seek to learn from our individual and shared experiences and engage in advocacy on racial issues in the wider world.
Why Lucy’s Children? Lucy was discovered in 1974 by paleontologists in Ethiopia. At that time she was the earliest known ancestor of the human species. This is why we call our group Lucy’s children.
