Come watch “Milk” in celebration of LGBTQ Pride Month
Jun 30 @ 11:00 am
Come watch "Milk" in celebration of LGBTQ Pride Month @ Brooklyn Society for Ethical Culture

In honor of LGBTQ Pride Month we will be showing the film “Milk”

Milk is a 2008 film about Harvey Milk, a politician and activist who became the first openly gay man elected to major public office in the United States. Directed by Gus Van Sant. Screenplay by Dustin Lance Black.

” Tonight, it’s become clear to everyone out there that they do know one of us, and now that they do, they can see that we are not sick. They can feel that we are not wrong. And they know that there must be, that there should be a place for us in this great country, in this world. A message of hope has been sent to all those young people, to all of those who have been afraid by this wave of hate, to all of those who have lost their homes, lost their hometowns. Tonight, we are clear that there is a place for us! My brothers and sisters, we can come home again.”

His life changed history. His courage changed lives

Film showing BSEC 11AM-12:30PM

Lucy’s Children Meeting
Jul 5 @ 4:00 pm – 6:30 pm
Lucy's Children Meeting @ Brooklyn Society for Ethical Culture - Library | Mount Prospect | Illinois | United States

We have launched a community effort to examine the fiction of Race and the fact of Racism.  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.

Our plan is to provide information, opportunities, and events that can help us come together as a society to end racism. We will meet the first three Fridays of most months from 4:00 to 6:30 PM at BSEC to plan our efforts, to share resources and related experiences.

Please join if you are interested and available.

All members of BSEC and their personal guests are welcome at the learning sessions of Lucy’s Children.

Note: if anyone wants to join LC but can’t make the 4-6;30PM time slot on Fridays please speak to one of the LC members or email Tasha Paley tashapal@gmail.com with a request for change of time.

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.
