“Be the change you wish to see in the world” – Mahatma Ghandi

On this Martin Luther King weekend please come to our January 14th WES talk (10:50-11:20am) on the Encampment for Citizenship (EFC), a youth citizenship summer program birthed by the Ethical Culture Movement in 1946, and still relevant today in these turbulent times of racial/ethnic divisiveness and political upheaval.  Jon Kerner, 1965 Berkeley, California Encamper and former EFC Board chair and Emily Glazer, 1967 Puerto Rico Encamper, former EFC staff and board member, and member of WES will share their EFC experiences and answer questions about this summer’s EFC program (in Raymond, Mississippi) focused on voting rights and education reform.

 

“Power without love is reckless and abusive, and love without power is sentimental and anemic. Power at its best is love implementing the demands of justice, and justice at its best is power correcting everything that stands against love.” – Martin Luther King
