Friday Morning Ethics Discussion: Hearing And Responding To Insulting, Racist, And Other Offensive Remarks

Friday July 3rd, 10am to noon PDT

We’ve all been in formal and informal conversations when someone utters a charged remark. We call it charged because it is unexpected and often hurtful. It can be a racial slur, an off-color joke, an unfounded accusation, an unseemly comparison. Sometimes the remark is met by silence and sometimes by laughter or embarrassment. Do we change the subject or challenge the instigator? Should we defend the person or persons being attacked? Should we just leave and hope that everyone forgets?

We’ll share our experiences. We’ll get advice from the experts and consider some various techniques and attempt to find some answers to these troubling events. Share your point of view and add to the discussion.

Please note that this an online event via Zoom videoconferencing. After you RSVP on the Meetup page for this event, the link will be visible in the box on the right hand side of the page along with other meeting details. You will also receive a meetup message with the link the day before the event. Molly will lead the discussion. 

 


 

Ethical Action Sunday: Reclaim Our Vote

Sunday July 5th, 11am to 12:30pm PDT

From the comfort of your shelter, join the digital meeting and learn about the Reclaim Our Vote postcard action.

We have organized more than 20 people who are actively engaged in writing postcards. More than 700 have been mailed to our volunteers. We have more if you want to participate! Come to the Zoom virtual meeting and learn more.  You will get a link to the meeting after you RSVP on the Meetup page for this event.

 


 

Coffee and Conversation

Sunday July 12th, 11am PDT

Coffee & Conversation sessions are informal, inclusive, supportive gatherings. We just talk about things that are on our minds, things that make for, or detract from, a fulfilling human life in the real world for ourselves and for other people. We listen to each other, share our thoughts, sip our hot drinks, and enjoy being together. 

Please note that this an online event via Zoom videoconferencing. You will get a link to the meeting after you RSVP on the Meetup page for this event.
