Join Kehilla Community Synagogue on Sunday, April 3, 2022 at 4pm Pacific for this live virtual event!
Thought leaders and activists Aurora Levins Morales, Naomi Ortiz and adrienne maree brown explore the core principles of sustainable activism – deeply rooted in the speakers’ own histories, community interdependence and disability justice.
How do we understand the difference between urgency and importance, between speed and hurry? How do we make our activism slow, deep, and irreversible? In the face of numerous economic, social and environmental crises, how can we tell we are doing enough, or even what enough means? In this Jewish Shmita year of rest and renewal, we invite you to join us as we do the vital work of building sustainability in ourselves and our movements for change over the long-term.
