MAY 6 Self-Advocacy: Using the System to Your Advantage

Join us for our May monthly potluck and gathering. Many have always found the world difficult to navigate, even before national political changes last November. Whether someone is trying to figure out how to avoid eviction/foreclosure, understand charges against them in the court system, or even get a permit for a chicken coop, dealing with bureaucracy, barriers, and other immediate concerns can often seem insurmountable.

At our May potluck, we will learn and support each other with any issues (submitted anonymously) the group wants to deal with. We can discuss strategies for how to survive and/or thrive through these issues and perhaps how to support others in our community as they attempt to survive and/or thrive.

As always, please feel free to bring a dish to share (or not!) and your appetite (or not!)

Remember that The Root Social Justice Center is both fragrance- and peanut-free.
