Just Friday: Just Friday is a recurring adult justice related discussion group on 4th Fridays from 7:00-9:00 p.m. in Roger Williams Hall. From May-August our justice discussions will be focused on climate change.
Each month will focus on different aspects of climate change and how the things we do contribute to or help improve the problem. Discussion will revolve around how we can change and create change in the world to positively impact this issue. At our first discussion in May people set goals that included allowing time for slower methods of transportation, appreciating travel destinations closer to home, working with local government on infrastructure improvements, and sharing outdoor enthusiasm with others. It was an engaging and encouraging conversation.
Future dates and themes for these discussions are: June 23 (Climate Change and What We Eat), July 28 (Climate Change and Our Daily Habits), and August 25 (Climate Change and the Stuff We Own). Contact Hopi Stosberg at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
