09/09/2018 Grab Your Privilege Like a Bat & Swing It at Racism, Injustice, Hatred 

Sunday, Sept. 9, 6:30 PM-8:30 PM

Berkeley Fellowship of Unitarian Universalists Hall
1924 Cedar (@Bonita), Berkeley www.bfuu.org

You are invited to join us for an exciting and inspiring evening with our own Berkeley-based activist Xan Joi, a self-proclaimed radical anti-racist Jewish and white lesbian feminist and now author. She will share stories and wisdom found in her new book But What Can I Do? gained from her experiences driving around the country over 400,000 miles since 9/11 in her veggie-oil powered box truck.

Today, as we collectively face the threat of impending annihilation  this time of our entire planet and not just a race, land or a country  and as we reel from the results of the last presidential electoral college appointment, many people are feeling the intense pain of waking up and the critical need to engage in some kind of action.
But What Can I Do? offers some and inspires other answers to that very question. Come join us! Bring an organic snack to share, if you want!
