• Sunday Assembly: JEDI: Justice. Equity. Diversity. Inclusion.

    Masonic Lodge

    Our guest speaker is Jenice, a prevention specialist with YWCA Golden Gate Silicon Valley. Come learn about how the YWCA has been at the forefront of the most pressing social movements for over 160 years — from voting rights to civil rights, from affordable housing to pay equity, from violence prevention to health care reform.

    Steve Sergeant is hosting. In addition to our guest speaker, we’ll have a great Doing-Your-Best talk, Creative Space presentation or reading, and fun singalongs. Bring a dish to share and be sure to join us for a potluck social time after Assembly!

    The songs for this month are:
    * Can't Fight This Feeling - REO Speedwagon
    * Marry You - Bruno Mars
    * I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles) - The Proclaimers
    * Time After Time - Cyndi Lauper
