Six Word Memoirs

Larry Smith is passionate about helping people share their stories of becoming. He created a website - Six Word Memoirs - with numerous tools and prompts to make the sharing easier. One of his prompts turned out to be everyone’s favorite: “Pair down your life journey to six words.” It was inspired by Ernest Hemingway taking up a bar bet to write a novel in 6 words.

Why We Need to Learn About Food and Food Justice: with Guest Speaker Christine Rai

Our food choices impact the environment, animal welfare, communities, and personal health. And in the United States, our food system reinforces inequities in health along racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic lines. Learning about food and food justice empowers us to make informed choices, support sustainable farming, and enact changes to create a more equitable and vibrant food system.

Beloved Community

February's theme is Beloved Community, the notion popularized by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr for a society based on justice, equal opportunity, and love of one’s fellow human beings; a global vision in which all people can share in the wealth of the earth. For today's program, we'll learn more about Dr. King's vision, and hear different viewpoints from modern civil rights activists who are working to advance the goals of Beloved Community that may offer challenging shifts to our daily lives.
