• Monthly AROMA Meeting

    Little Five Points Community

    Are you outraged by injustice but don’t know what to do? New to activism or looking to get more connected? Want to support your community in solidarity and love? You are invited to join Activists Recruiting, Organizing and Mentoring in Atlanta (AROMA) for our metro-Atlanta meet and greets every LAST Thursday of the month. These are informal and semi-structured networking events to support the local activist community in ATL. Our relationships are the most important resource we have to win the world we need. You can expect to participate in Activist Speed-Friending, hear more about what it really means to organize for justice, and meet some of the folks on the front lines already doing the work needed to transform society and transition into a better world! You can also expect to start to see how you can be the change, and invitations to participate in efforts for justice right away. If you are able, please BRING FOOD, drinks, or donations to share, and please SPREAD THE WORD by inviting your friends and neighbors! Hope to see you there! POWER TO THE PEOPLE!

  • Mixed Group Documentary Night: How To Change The World

    Unitarian Universalist Northwest Congregation

    This event is hosted in collaboration with multiple meetup groups, including the Atlanta Volunteer Meetup Group, Sunday Asssembly, the Late 20s & Early 30s ATL Meetup Group, and the Vegan Social Club. Therefore those in attendance will be from varying backgrounds and beliefs. This is in order to provide an opportunity to hear a wide range of perspectives. For documentary night we will be watching How To Change The World. This film tells the story of Greenpeace's earliest days as a group of friends improvised their way into starting a global movement. After the film we will break out into small discussion groups. We will do multiple rounds of small group discussion, then close out the night with a whole group discussion. This event is open to all who are open to all. The one thing we ask is that people allow others to get their full thought out and that any disagreement is voiced in a civil way. At the end we will decide together the topic for the next month's film. Thank you and hope to see you there! Previous Documentaries Shown: Jan. 11: Where To Invade Next Feb. 8: Teach Us All Mar. 8: The Corporation Apr. 5: A New Economy May 10: Minimalism Jun. 14: Alive Inside Jun. 28: All The Rage July 12: What Is Democracy July 26: The Altruism Revolution
