Some go to a gym to work out to build their physical strength, some go to a school or library to build mental strength — where do you go to build your advocacy strength? To learn some skills, have an opportunity to do even some small things to make the world better, to be with others? To plan how to get involved in actions?
Now there’s a new answer: join us at the Society for Ethical Culture on Thursday early evening, from 4:30 – 7:00 pm (drop in at whatever time you’re able to). We’ll have a couple of projects to do each week — write a letter or email, make a sign, call someone who represents you, etc. — and also share stories of what we’ve each done and want to do. We might have an article to read or a short video playing to learn more about an issue.
Bring a snack to share. You’re welcome to bring your children. You’ll need to keep an eye on them, as we don’t have babysitting available, though we will have some toys and drawing supplies out.
Voluntary donations are split between sustaining the costs of using the space, and contributing to a different organization each week. By contributing through this way, you get the full tax deductibility of your contribution (write a check to avoid any questions about how much you donated), and you also know that the half that you are contributing to the organization won’t get you on that group’s mailing list, wasting lots of paper and postage.
