On May 4, SURJ LV was invited to facilitate a discussion at the UU Congregation of Las Vegas as part of their five-month documentary and discussion series. This was the 2nd event in the series, and we watched the HBO Documentary, The Education of Mohammad Hussein.
About 30 people showed up to the film and discussion. A number of SURJ members came out, along with some new faces. I spoke about some of the things SURJ has done in the community and some of the groups that we have partnered with. The conversation after the film was facilitated by Dan Cryer, SURJ Action Lead and Ariel Sublett, SURJ Facebook Group Moderator. The discussion was lively and thought-provoking.
We let the gathered group know about our Triple C’s Fundraiser/Donation Drive that is taking place through May and invited them to come to our June event.
For more information about our June event, please visit our Upcoming Events page.
We are really excited about this partnership with UUCLV and feel very passionately about starting these conversations with other white people in our community. We look forward to seeing you next month.
