UPCOMING: Kentucky Social Forum at Berea College, July 31-Aug 2

by

In several weeks, one of the biggest social justice events is happening in the state. And by big I mean BIG.

If you’re an activist, volunteer or just an average Joe or Jane working for change, then the Kentucky Social Forum is right up your alley. This weekend-long event is the first of its kind in the state, modeling after national social forums by hosting a series of events aimed at spreading progressiveness across the Bluegrass. There will be workshops covering anything and everything you need to know about human rights issues, from homelessness to hunger, economic and environmental justice and of course, lots of things for the GLBTQ community.

But that’s not all! There will also be poetry slams, concerts and interfaith services for you to participate in. All of this is going on at Berea, a small college town known for its eclectic, artsy scene. Anyone and everyone, from students to retired union workers will be there so you’ll fit right in.

Registration is required and prices vary on a sliding scale. If you want to host a workshop or just attend, please visit the Web site. Housing is also provided and scholarships may be available for accommodation and travel, but it’s first-come, first-serve! Register today!
