Just a reminder that the regular Justice Committee meeting (7 PM) preceded by the Justice Eucharist at 6:30 is scheduled for the second Wednesday of the month. That is next week on April 11. We will meet at the church. I look forward to seeing you.
In addition I want to bring to your attention a training opportunity with BUILD to be held this Thursday. The details are in the body of an email from Libby Cohen who is the BUILD organizer that works with Memorial...copied and pasted here. I know that Dick W. is going. All others who are able are encouraged to participate also.
I wanted to make sure you all knew that we'll be gathering for our next citywide issue action team training, or 'Nehemiah' training, next Thursday, April 5th from 6:30 to 8:30 at Northside Baptist Church.
Just as a quick reminder, we've divided into 4 issue action teams: youth trauma and opportunities (where Jessica has been helping us do great research work--thanks, Jessica!); policing and public safety; mental health and addiction; and jobs. Our police team has been doing great accountability work with the new commissioner, and they will lead us in a workshop on moving from 'problem to issue' and political judgment. We'll then break into our issue teams to apply what we've learned. **No worries if you did not make it to our first of these trainings in January; you are welcome to jump in now!"
