Social Justice Book Group

Alex Wolfe, who has both a passion for social justice and a degree in political science, has been a political activist for more than four years, eventually becoming involved in Black Lives Matter in early 2016. In that time, she has come to understand that White comrades in the movement need to educate themselves first, so as not to drain the leaders’ limited time and resources. To address that need, Alex created the activist organization 'White People for Black Lives,' and this reading group. 

This group meets the third Sunday of each month at 4 p.m.

Leaders: Alex Wolfe (ashapardanis@gmail.com) & Anne Bradley (ab3419@gmail.com).
