Community Conversation: Social Justice

Join us on Wednesday, February 10th at 6 pm at Grace Church HallĀ in a vibrant and interactive community conversation on social justice. This event will feature guest speakers Karen Toering and Rebecca Allen from Social Justice Fund Northwest. What do we mean by “social justice?” How does it apply to us on Lopez? It will be an engaging and enjoyable evening! This event is convened by the LIFRC in cooperation with other community members and organizations.

Social Justice Fund Northwest is a foundation working at the frontlines of social change. They leverage the resources of their members to foster significant, long-term social justice solutions throughout the northwest.
