Are you struggling with feelings of hopelessness, helplessness or even despair about the state of the world?
Do you wish you could do something about it — beyond calling Congress?
Maybe you even have an idea about a project on an issue that matters to you, but aren’t sure how to make it happen.
In this Lunchtime Lesson, leader and activist Emily Levy will shift your perspective about what’s possible for you when it comes to making a big difference in the world. She specializes in helping people who respond to injustice by asking, “What can I do about it?” find powerful answers that are uniquely suited to their interests, skills, and circumstances.
Whether you consider yourself an activist, wish you had what it takes to be an activist, or are repelled by activism, if you want to find your place in helping the world get out of the mess we’re in right now, you’ll find new ideas and inspiration at this meeting.
Noon-1:00 PM in the WORK Library. $10 at the door for Non-WORK Members (free for WORK Members, including Friends of Work). Feel free to bring a bag lunch.
