Open Lecture Series: Social Justice May 27

Social Justice: Addressing the Narrative of Fear
Saturday, May 27, 2017, 10am-5pm
First Unitarian Society of Minneapolis
900 Mount Curve Avenue, Minneapolis, MN 55403

The second event of our Open Lecture Series will examine various forms of social oppression (e.g. racism, sexism, xenophobia, queer-antagonism, anti-semitism, etc.) and how these cultural prejudices are exploited by the right wing to reinforce the fear narrative. Speakers will look at how we may develop a new narrative, create positive solutions and establish integrated, inclusive strategies for creating significant change in the Trump era.

Lunch will be provided. Donations appreciated. For questions, email manager@humanistinstitute.org.
