The United Methodist Women of Lincoln Memorial United Methodist Church are hosting a Racial Equity and Social Justice Town Hall on Tuesday October 19 at 6 P.M., 641 Masten Ave. in the City of Buffalo. This community conversation will focus on one of the UMW’s mission focus on racial justice and interrupting the school to prison pipeline.
They have invited India Walton, the first African – American woman to earn the Democratic Nomination for Buffalo Mayor, to share her vision and thoughts on this issue.
This Town Hall will focus on the need to address racial equity in housing, business development, education and criminal justice as a means to interrupt the school to prison pipeline in the region. The United Methodist Women have been engaged in progressive causes for over 150 years taking positions on social justice issues and working to change legislation, systems and practices they consider unjust or oppressive.
They continue to build on this foundation as they work to end maternal mortality, fight for a living wage for all, interrupt the school-to-prison pipeline, and ensure justice for all.
This event is open to the public.
If you have any questions regarding the event, please contact the church via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
