February Community Gathering, w/ Lena K. Gardner
Join our third Thursday programing.
Our monthly zoom gatherings are a space to check in with each other on our justice journeys. We invite you to join as we grow and learn from our wider community of activists, advocates, allies, and co-conspirators. Each month, we invite a new guest, and in doing so, uplift the voices of women around the country.
This month we welcome Lena K. Gardner, Executive Director of Black Lives of Unitarian Universalism (BLUU). She will share updates on her work and how we can plug into her community.
Programming runs an hour. Auto captioning will be available.
