The Issues and Actions Circle discusses issues of the day from the news, platform or individual interests for the purpose of expressing our thoughts and feelings, learning from others and arriving at constructive activities that might benefit the situation. Participants decide on the topic at the start of the meeting and are encouraged to present their opinions and respond to those of others. The intent is to ground our principles and values in the actual problems of our community, country and world. The meeting begins around 1pm, Sundays, after our Sunday morning Platform, allowing some time for “lunch with the bunch”, while food can also be brought to the table.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
