AFSC, Church World Service, and the Unitarian Universalist Assoc. are launching an online course (three 1.5-hour sessions in June, July, Aug.) entitled Creating Sanctuary/Changing Ourselves.  The purpose is to jump start local groups to do anti-racism self reflection work and to participate in the Sanctuary movement. Please see Tomi if you would like more information and/or are interested in joining a BFC group.

Peace, Environment, and Christian Social Concerns will be showing “Healing Justice,” a World Trust film by Shakti Butler, on Fri, June 1.  Doors open at 6:30; film starts at 7PM. The film addresses the question: “How can restorative practices be used to shift the way we address crime and violence in our communities to produce safer, healthier, thriving communities for all?”

Please pray for, donate, and or march with the Poor People’s Campaign. The campaign is committing to 40 days of nonviolent action. It is a national call to moral revival, a mass mobilization led by poor and working people to challenge systemic poverty, racism, militarism and ecological devastation
