Charlottesville: Injustice Anywhere is Injustice Everywhere

August 20, 2017 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

In light of the current state of race and identity in America, the ICSC and MPAC will be holding a difficult, yet important, conversation on race, racism and social inequity, Charlottesville: Injustice Anywhere is Injustice Everywhere.  
Join us this Sunday at the Islamic Center from 11:30 AM – 1:00 PM for a candid conversation with renowned civil rights activist, Rev. Jesse Jackson.   
The violence we all witnessed in Charlottesville, Virginia this past weekend is a crude reminder of the deepening and widening divide taking place in American society. As Martin Luther King, Jr. said, “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”  We cannot ignore the increased prevalence of neo-Nazi groups, nor can we hope to bridge mutual understanding without collective action.   
Don’t miss this conversation!
