OPC Third Anniversary — honoring Dr. King’s Legacy by Living It!
Three years ago the OPC launched with great fanfare! We hosted community workshops, a film screening, a potluck, a panel discussion and a concert! OPC partners tabled with information about their programs and offerings, too!
On our first anniversary we hosted a talk by Rita Nakashima Brock about the concept of Moral Injury in returning veterans. (Rita is co-director of the Soul Repair Center now, addressing this issue nationwide.) On our second anniversary, we hosted a workshop on self-care as community care. Both were powerful. And people still talk to me about our first event three years later.
So here’s the plan! Protect your calendar all day January 17 and 18.
SATURDAY, JANUARY 17
10AM-4PM we’ll have a teach-in with your choice of workshops (details to follow): how to plant fruit-bearing trees and participate in a sharing economy, how to find inner peace as an activist, how to connect to the spirituality and justice of food, how to transform the prison industrial complex, and more!
4-5PM mix and mingle and experience fantastic snacks thanks to OPC partners doing food justice work.
