Social Justice Opportunities

Support of city bus riders in their efforts to improve the local transit system
Sunday, May 7 (Fellowship Hall/Wallace Foyer)

FPC-A’s Social Justice team is focusing this year on how we can lend our voices to those of city bus riders in their efforts to improve the local transit system. You are invited to take action steps to support Just Economics’ Transit Campaign by 1) coming to the Fellowship Hall following the late service to join members of the Social Justice Team in taking next steps of advocacy, or 2) stopping by the table in the Wallace Foyer to pick up an action sheet anytime Sunday morning. For more information, contact Marge Marsh (285-2326).

Faith community meeting with State Representative Susan Fisher
Friday, May 12 (9:15-10:30 AM) @ Congregation Beth HaTephila

Children First/Communities in Schools is sponsoring a faith forum with Rep. Susan Fisher. This is a chance to meet with a local elected leader and discuss issues such as housing affordability, investments in early childhood, public transportation, health care, and juvenile justice. We will hear what is coming up in the state session, learn how to best communicate with your elected officials, and network with other clergy and lay leaders interested in public policy advocacy.   Congregation Beth HaTephila is located at 43 N. Liberty Street in Asheville, and there is a parking lot adjacent to the building.  RSVP to tamarar@childrenfirstbc.org
