Social  Justice Calls to Action 

The Good Trouble Book Group hope to create the desire to support each other through choosing social actions that will support significant cultural shifts within our communities. We can make our small contributions by not only reading but attending (when possible) lectures, protests, film festivals as well as maintaining vigilance and contact with legislators. The links below may offer you a pledge to be part of the social justice movement and/or offer you the opportunity to participate in a call to some sort of social action.

 

-  "...if you see something that is not right, not fair, not just, do something. We cannot afford to be quiet.” - John Lewis -

 

 

2022 mid-term elections. We place this call to action very high on the agenda of social justice actions for the book group. 2022 is just around the corner and 22 Republican Senate seats (14 Democratic Senate seats) are up for 2022.
