The speakers will discuss these issues and more as a panel and will answer audience questions in an open Q&A.

Angelica Magana, Rise and Organize
Mrinalini Chakraborty, Women’s March - Illinois
Carolyn Ruff, Black Lives Matter Women of Faith
Lashawn Littrice, Black Lives Matter Women of Faith

Third Unitarian Church is a small, diverse, welcoming congregation in the Austin neighborhood of Chicago. The congregation is a blend of humanists, theists, agnostics and atheists. The Unitarian Universalist principles center around respect for all people and the planet, free inquiry, and a commitment to social justice. Carley Mostar will kick off the event with an introduction to the church, its mission and its work in the community. 

The church is a very short walk from the Austin Green Line stop, and free street parking is available.
