In light of the Supreme Court decisions that came down this week undermining the separation of church and state in the areas of reproductive rights and education, the Social Justice Coordinating Team recommends that people watch the recordings of the Americans United for Separation of Church and State Summer Series, particularly the June 2, 9, and 23 webinars.
The Planned Parenthood Powering Change 2019 Action Summit is Tuesday, April 16, from 12 to 5 p.m. in Lansing. Registration fee is $10, which includes lunch, membership into Planned Parenthood Advocates of Michigan, and a T-shirt. If you are interested in attending, please contact Candi Tomlinson (989-506-7477; CandisJuel@gmail.com).
The Social Justice Coordinating Team is facilitating two workshops titled “Reproductive Justice: A Threat to All of Us” on Sundays, October 14 (12:00-2:30) and 21 (12:00-2:00), after the worship service. The first workshop will share the documentary “Trapped” and facilitate a discussion. The second will share with participants current legislation both in Michigan and in the nation and provide steps for actions to take. Sign-up will be available on Sundays, September 30 and October 7, so that the team can plan to provide a light lunch to participants.
