Welcome to Elder Activists for Social Justice
Community Conversation and Team Meeting
We use the first hour of our meeting to discuss subjects that are related to our mission, which is to educate ourselves regarding issues of social injustice, to share our growing understanding of these issues, and to develop an initial plan for collaborative, active engagement to address these issues as we build the EASJ Team and the Conscious Elers Network Organization..
Our essential and in-depth studies have been about how racism is prevalent today throughout our systems, institutions and structures, how oppression keeps us divided and continues unfair economic discrepancies, such as lack of education and poverty.
Subjects in which we have had and continue deep conversation are White Privilege, Native American issues, Cultural Misappropriation and the Doctrine of Discovery. Most recently we have been exploring our own cultural, family, and personal identifications, as part of our effort to understand how circumstances shape and limit our worldviews.
The second hour of our call is our monthly “business meeting.” ALL are invited into our exciting discussions where we work together to get into action, as individuals and as an organization. We are also currently in conversation about our EASJ proposal to hold a public Webinar and workshops on the West and East Coasts.
Our format is experiential and everyone has a chance to share. On the first of each month approximately two weeks before the meeting we will publish information about our subject with applicable reading, videos, articles and / or prompting questions.
We welcome all newcomers to CEN as well as seasoned EASJ friends to engage with us in meaningful conversation. Learn more about EASJ HERE
