We have all been to many meetings and rallies at the end of which no one knows what they can do. If you participate in demonstrations, rallies and social media you need to go to your local coffee house and have a discussion with five to ten individuals about what you can do about racial and social justice and community development. Begin building the community you want to live in. We want to build 100 of these coffee discussion groups. You may want to come to one of these listed below. Or start your own and let us know. Be sure to invite someone from the affected classes.
There are now several First Thursday Coffee and Discussion groups:
- First Thursday Coffee & Discussion East Central Community Center 10 am 500 S Stone
- First Thursday Original Coffee & Discussion 10:00 am Rocket Market 726 E 43rd (meets 2nd & 4th Thursdays)
