Social Justice Community Calendar

SOPHIA has officially launched a collaborative Social Justice Community Calendar! We worked together with Plowshare in Downtown Waukesha and additional organizations in Waukesha County will be invited to participate over the next couple of months. It is hoped that this will serve as a way for individuals interested in participating in social justice education and/or advocacy events and opportunities to find out when those are happening. Please bookmark or save the link to this calendar and check back often as new events will be added!

Anti Racism Change Team at United UU Congregation of Waukesha

One of our members, the United UU Congregation of Waukesha, has an Anti Racism Change (ARC) Team that has begun facilitating the development of a community group in Waukesha similar to Tosa Together (www.tosatogether.org). They hope the community group will be a true reflection of Waukesha with people of all ages, ethnicity and walks of life. Their meetings are currently set for the third Wednesday of the month from 5 to 6pm on Zoom. If BIPOC would feel more comfortable and safe during the meetings, a separate "room" will be provided with privacy assured. If you would like to attend or would like more information, please email Marcia Romashko at owasseh@yahoo.com. Until the group decides on a name, look for their meetings listed as "Equity and Inclusion" on their calendars and publicity. Here is a link to their website and Facebook page.
