The Women’s Social Justice Study Circle offers a common ground for understanding our troubled world and exploring alternative futures. Every other month, women from different backgrounds gather to explore the gap between the ideals of justice and the everyday experiences of injustice. Through reading and dialogue, participants engage in creative and practical thinking from multiple perspectives, with the goal of creating informed global citizens committed to a just, equitable and inclusive world. No reservation or registration is necessary; you are welcome to come as you are able and inclined. We encourage you to read the chosen book ahead of time.
