“We have before us the glorious opportunity to inject a new dimension of love into the veins of our civilization.”
—-Martin Luther King, Jr.
In the words of Martin Luther King Jr., “Our goal is to create a beloved community and this will require a qualitative change in our souls as well as a quantitative change in our lives.”
The November gathering will provide tools – both spiritual and political – with which to re-envision our political possibilities, run for office if you feel so moved, and transform America one campaign at a time.
We will focus on issues, both personal and political: On the personal side, we will discuss emotional and psychological issues that keep women from expressing our full power in the public domain.
Politically, we will discuss some pressing issues now calling us to act:
- At a rate of 23.1%, child poverty in the United States ranks second highest among 35 developed nations (second only to Romania);
- The US currently incarcerates more of our people than any nation in the world, or any nation in history;
- Without a Constitutional Amendment to override the effects of the Supreme Court decision “Citizens United,” money will continue to wield increasingly undue influence on American politics.
