Tzedek Campaign 2020: After the Election

Sun December 20, 2020 at 6:00 pm - 7:15 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 6:00 pm on Sunday, repeating until Sun December 20, 2020

Since last summer, Mount Zion members have been speaking with each other one-to-one about our community and our country and what keeps them up at night at a time when so much does. There were three areas of focus in addition to civic engagement: racial justice, immigrant justice, and climate justice. Now, after the election, the question is what is possible to act upon in each arena? The Tzedek committee will host three sessions with local experts in policy agendas on the county and state levels on three Sundays in December. These sessions will prepare us for Tzedek Shabbat during Martin Luther King, Jr. weekend where we will hear from inspiring speakers in each arena. Following this Shabbat, all will be invited for a Mount Zion Book Read of Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents by Isabel Wilkerson in February (dates TBD).
