OUR all-volunteer Leadership Circle (steering committee) after much discussion and at the suggestion of our Social Action Leader, Sharron Howard, has chosen to support Second Chance Last Opportunity. Because we missed the deadline for their TOY DRIVE, WIN sent them a monetary donation.

"Eliminating Racial Inequities in the Criminal Legal System" Webinar, Wednesday, March 3 at 6 pm
EquaSion's A Mighty Stream interfaith racial justice initiative will launch with a webinar series examining the racial inequities in a number of quality-of-life systems to educate the public through our interfaith community.
"Many of us care deeply about the racial inequities that plague so many facets of American life. We sincerely want to eliminate unfairness and systemic inequality, but too often we simply do not know how to help. This series responds to the need through education from experts who will recommend actions for remediating structural disparities based on race," said Rabbi Gary P. Zola, Ph.D., executive director of the American Jewish Archives at Hebrew Union College and one of the leaders of the "AMS" initiative.

The festival's purposes are to showcare our community's rich diversity of religions, recognize religion's contributions to our quality of life, promote interfaith understanding and collaboration, and organize and unify our numerous faiths into a moral force for social change.
