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. The topics at our first three meetings were sexual harassment, gentrification and possibilities for attracting Trump’s base of support.”`
