The Social Justice Committee and the local chapter of Move To Amend have partnered to organize a public talk by David Cobb, this Sunday at the Unitarian Church of Barnstable. Move To Amend is a national movement to overturn Citizens United, which would ensure corporations are not treated as persons anymore and that money is not free speech.
This Friday, in lieu of a film, the Social Justice Committee will host a discussion and open forum to find out what can be done to make life better for everyone on Cape Cod and beyond. We will focus on three questions:
- What issues on Cape Cod are you concerned with?
- What are the solutions?
- What concrete steps will we take?
For the past five years, the SJC has worked to promote three interests: water justice, the new economy, and mutual respect or kindness, especially for the vulnerable and voiceless. We have addressed these issues with activities like conferences and workshops, fund raisers for local charities, community gardening, and our movie series.
The Cobb’s Hill Community Series’ mission is to raise awareness in a non-partisan way about important issues that have local and global implications, and to inspire personal and community action. This will be a chance for you to tell us what you think. Please come and share your ideas.
As usual, we will be at the Unitarian Church of Barnstable and will have a potluck dinner at 6pm. The discussion will begin at 7pm. For more details, please see the flyer.
I hope you can make it!
After the summer hiatus, the Cobb’s Hill Community Series is back!
The Unitarian Church of Barnstable’s Social Justice committee invites you to the next movie of this series. We will show “Money and Life” on Friday September 26. This movie explains the history of money in society as well as the psychology and spirituality that has emerged around it.
As usual you are invited to a potluck at 6 pm and we encourage each participant to bring local or organic food preferably. The movies start at 7 pm. If you plan on attending, please RSVP to Jo Ann Kelley (firstname.lastname@example.org) by Wednesday preceding the movie.
Where is this event? In Warren Hall, Unitarian Church of Barnstable (3330 Main Street), Barnstable, on route 6A.
When is it? Friday September 26, 6 pm for potluck, 7 pm for movie. Post movie discussion until 9 pm.
Why is this? The series gives an opportunity for people in the community to socialize. The movies deal with societal issues and the ensuing discussions are aimed at giving each other a voice and tools to strengthen and energize our community. The potluck also provides fun and tasty foods.
See you at the movies!
