Social Justice Book Club


Second Sunday each month | 4 PM | Zoom

This book club gets us thinking and talking about inequality and injustice in the U.S.

Nonfiction, novels, memoirs, and more–we seek multiple perspectives, with multiple points of entry, and we work to center the voices of marginalized communities and people through our exploration.

Please contact Polli Kenn ( for more information or for the Zoom link.
