BUC Spotlight

Standing on the Side of Love ~ Sat. Nov. 28, 6 PM

Beverly Unitarian is opening its doors for anyone who might be in need. In the wake of injustice, we gather to know we are not alone. In the face of fear, we stand together stronger and more resolved. Instead of spreading hate we will continue to work for change. There will be music/conversation, perhaps planning and organizing, definitely community for whomever is here.

Prison Industrial Workshop 101

Event: 
October 10, 2015 - 9:00am - 12:00pm

We’ve all been shocked and saddened by the number of young black men killed by the police in recent months. Another aspect of racial injustice is the mass incarceration of African-Americans. There will be a workshop on the prison industrial complex, of which mass incarceration is an integral part. The workshop is sponsored by the Social Action Committee. Please mark your calendars! This workshop is an introduction to the prison industrial complex (PIC) from an abolitionist perspective. Abolition means the replacement of the current, unjust system with a system that is just and equitable. We'll examine the PIC's roots, reach, and impact on our lives, as well as our ability to transform it. It’s easy to feel helpless in the face of the racial injustice in our society. This is an opportunity to learn and reflect on what we can do to change it.
