African American Community Healing Day https://communityhealingnet.org/community-healing_days/
Inspired by Dr. Angelou, Founding Chair of CHN’s Board of Advisors, Community Healing Days was one of CHN’s first initiatives. Held on the third weekend of every October, this celebration is designed to put “time for healing” at the top of the global Black community’s agenda, celebrate our resilience, and increase our solidarity. In 2013, Dr. Angelou issued a call encouraging Black people and our allies to Wear Sky Blue during Community Healing Days as a sign of our collective determination to “turn the pain of the blues into the sky blue of unlimited possibilities.” We invite you to join us each year, on the third weekend of October, in answering Dr. Angelou’s call.

Remembering Hiroshima, Nagasaki: save Aug. 7 for remembering Hiroshima, Nagasaki https://peaceworkskc.org › uploads › 2022/06 › P… Hiroshima Day Activities for the Classroom Hiroshima Day is meant to memorialize the use of nuclear weapons in WWII and to draw awareness to anti-war and anti-nuclear campaigns. These activities can give your entire classroom a chance to engage in these ideas. Instructor: Christopher Muscato: Hiroshima Day- Hiroshima Day is an annual remembrance generally observed on August 6, the anniversary of the first use of nuclear weapons at Hiroshima. While the use of nuclear bombs inarguably hastened the end of the war, that came at the cost of tens of thousands of lives. Hiroshima Day arose as a way to commemorate this event, as well as to draw awareness of pro-peace, anti-war, and anti-nuclear weapons campaigns. These activities are designed to get your classroom engaged with Hiroshima Day and anti-war, anti-nuclear weapons debates. The following activities are designed to be easily adaptable to most classrooms and levels. Rally: Divide the class into small groups. Inform them that a big part of Hiroshima Day is anti-war and anti-nuclear weapons demonstrations, so you are going to hold an in-class rally. Each group will come up with a speech, poem, spoken word piece, song, skit, or something else to present at this rally. In addition, all students should be given materials to make their own protest signs. If you can, consider having a march through the school prior to the rally. Materials: Poster board, art and craft supplies as desired. Hiroshima Day Street Art: Cover the walls of the classroom in large paper. Either independently or in groups, students are going to come up with a street art design for Hiroshima Day. This can be a graffiti-style word or phrase, a work of stencil graffiti, or something similar but most be either an anti-war/anti-nuclear weapons image or a remembrance image. Give students time to design their graffiti and paint them somewhere on the paper-covered walls.
6:30 -8:00 pm – Confronting Conspiracy Theories and Organized Bigotry at Home and in our Communities, via zoom meeting open to all. Registration is a 2 step process, so register below to receive the workshop link: Register in advance for this meeting: https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZUldeCoqD8qHtfQ_yDxNYRcU2PCN0eSBS0Y Professor Shelly Tochluk from Mount St. Mary’s is the author of Witnessing Whiteness and Living in the Tension and will be our resource for this discussion. CRJ is concerned about the increase in racial hatred and the level of violence escalating around the indoctrination and recruitment of young people into a white nationalist mind set. We would like to share some ideas about how to talk with people about the very real dangers to wellbeing & democracy as we know it in the US because of the messaging from the radical right that isn’t often effectively countered in our culture today – and how all this comes out of racism and fear. Although the expansion of white nationalist sentiment and conspiracy theories on the political far-right is well-documented, many dedicated to cultivating an inclusive democracy continue to view white nationalists as fringe players, dismissing their ability to make a real impact. Too many of us do not understand the scope of the threat, the alignment with organized hate groups, and the mechanisms of recruitment. To counter them, we need to understand how the far-right weaponizes white identity and the general failure of antiracists to adequately counter far-right claims. This presentation will also address how to engage with people susceptible to far-right ideas to interrupt recruitment into bigotry. Come and join in this most timely discussion. Let us work together to strengthen justice in our democracy and our communities. For more information, call Joanne at 310-422-5431.

6 p.m. Join us for Los Angeles City Planning’s upcoming Mills Act Program workshop via Zoom: Meeting ID: 863 9235 6850 – Password: 083449, Phone Number: +1 213 338 8477 planning-lacity-org.zoom.us/j/86392356850 Join us for Los Angeles City Planning’s upcoming Mills Act Program workshop on Aug. 8, 2022 at 6 p.m. The Mills Act Historical Property Contract Program has served as Los Angeles’s primary financial incentive for historic preservation since 1996, offering property tax savings for owners who invest in the rehabilitation and restoration of historic buildings. City Planning has completed a comprehensive assessment of the City’s Mills Act Program to consider the future of the program and analyze its sustainability, fiscal impact, management needs, and equity outcomes. The program assessment will inform policy recommendations from City Planning to the City Council on options to improve the administration of the program, expand participation in communities with historic disinvestment, and increase capacity for new Mills Act applications. The full report is available online. PROVIDE YOUR INPUT City Planning recently hosted an opportunity for public feedback at the July 21, 2022 Cultural Heritage Commission meeting. The next opportunity to find out more about report findings will be at the upcoming Aug. 8 workshop. Public input is important prior to preparing policy recommendations to the City Council. Staff will be available by phone, email, or at the Aug. 8 workshop to receive feedback and answer questions. Feedback can also be provided via the online form.

7-8:30 pm, the role of Israel/Palestine and US politics in the political moment – We’ll hear from a panel of IfNotNow founders and other Jewish movement leaders (e.g., Working Families Party & Sunrise founders and leaders) about the political moment we’re in and what’s needed from us. RSVP here and you’ll get sent a link to submit questions before the panel. This is not going to be a scripted talk: it’ll be a genuine, open conversation about what our movement needs to be saying and doing, right now. IfNotNow members and leaders, past and present, are invited to come listen in – because all of us need to be having these discussions right now, for the sake of sharpening our thinking and preparing for the fight ahead. Here are the core questions we’ll get into on the call: How do we talk about all of this? Leaders on the far right are openly stating that they are white Christian nationalists, and that Jews are not welcome in their movement.
Despite this existential threat, many in our community still feel antisemitism is a “both sides” problem. Movements for racial and economic justice are building deeper, stronger alliances – but as long as we’re facing antisemitism smears from powerful right-wing forces, the coalition we can build won’t be as big as it needs to be. AIPAC is pouring money into elections, sometimes more than any other lobby, with the express purpose of keeping progressives out of office. Once we’ve figured out how to talk about these intersecting crises, what do we do about it? What are our people hungry for right now, and what should our campaigning look like? Join us August 9th at 7 pm Eastern. (If you can’t make it, we’ll send you the recording.) Noah Wagner <email@example.com> https://www.ifnotnowmovement.org/

5pm-Reboot Ideas Presents: Integrity First for America-Five Years After Charlottesville:Democracy At Stake. With Amy Spitalnick (Integrity First for America) and Ilyse Hogue (The Lie That Binds).
Multiracial democracy in the United States and the freedom to live as American Jews are inextricably linked. Unfortunately, they both hang precariously in the balance. Fueled by antisemitism, racism, and white supremacy, neo-Nazis attacked Charlottesville in August 2017. Five years later, the fight against this violent bigotry continues, with extremism increasingly normalized in our politics and society, from the Supreme Court decision overturning Roe, to attacks on marginalized communities and rising political violence.

12:00pm to 5:00pm – National Chicano Moratorium Committee 52nd National Chicano Moratorium Commemoration. At Ruben Salazar Park, 3864 Whittier Boulevard, East Los Angeles CA 90023. Rally & Program: The historic August 29th, 1970 Peaceful March in East Los Angeles against the war in Southeast Asia was the culmination of a two year organizing and mobilization against the war in Southeast Asia and against the racism, discrimination, law enforcement abuse, economic exploitation and the U.S.A. institutional policies of educational, social and cultural ethnic cleansing. Over 30,000 gathered and peacefully marched through East Los Angeles via Whittier Blvd., to L.A. County Laguna Park for a rally and program that was interrupted and attacked without warning by the Sheriffs, LAPD and FBI COINTPRO agents. Hundreds were arrested, hundreds injured and three were killed, Brown Berets Lynn Ward and Angel Diaz along with L.A. Times journalist Ruben Salazar. The peaceful marchers valiantly fought off the illegal attack by the aforementioned law enforcement elements. Laguna Park was renamed Ruben Salazar Park. The historic August 29th, 1970 March has been commemorated by the National Chicano Moratorium Committee since August 29th, 1970 in order to honor and preserve our Chicano, Mexican and Latino history. Furthermore, the National Chicano Moratorium Committee along with the National Brown Berets de Aztlan continue the struggle for Self Determination, National Liberation and the opposition against white supremacy and ethnic cleansing. It is also important to note that we advocate for the rights of all people.
