2016 Young Souls September Events
Saturday, August 27th, 2:00 – 3:30pm – Imagining a World Without Police
Have you ever wondered what communities would look like with little or no state-based policing? For many, a world without police is controversial or even unimaginable, but it is possible. Join us on Saturday, August 27th to discuss the fundamental problems with our current model of policing and imagine a world without police as we know them. This event will be conversation-based, allowing us to learn from each other as we think about community-based alternatives to policing and making our communities safer for everyone. Availability will be limited due to room capacity, so please RSVP here. We look forward to a insightful and stimulating conversation! Location: NOE Meeting Room, Northeast Library, 330 7th St., NE.
Sunday, August 28th, 5:00 – 8:00pm – The Moral Revival
Remember Rev. William Barber’s sermon at All Souls or his speech at the DNC? “The Revival: Time for a Moral Revolution of Values” is a national tour to redefine morality in American politics and challenge leaders of faith and moral courage to be more vocally opposed to harmful policies that disproportionately impact the poor, people who are ill, children, immigrants, communities of color, and religious minorities. Rev. Barber and the Rev. Dr. James A Forbes Jr. are leading a nationwide Moral Revival, with stops across the country. Location: Pennsylvania Ave Baptist Church 3000 Pennsylvania Ave SE Washington, DC 20020. Let members of All Souls and the Reeb project know you’re coming by RSVPing here.
