About Lucy’s Children:
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.
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 email@example.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.
