Jan. 20 will mark one year since Trump’s inauguration and the anniversary of the massive women’s marches that took place all across the country the following day. Many people across the country will again be rallying and marching against the continued sexist attacks and anti-people policies of the Trump regime.
Looking back through history we see that the powerful movements of the people is what leads to change. Merely electing women to office and voting for the least repugnant choices will not solve the myriad of problems facing women and oppressed people today

7. Sunday, 12:30pm, Michael Roosevelt:” Implicit Bias: A Conversation”
Unitarian Universalist Church, TSK Room
1187 Franklin St. (@ Geary Blvd.)
This highly interactive session explores what has been learned from research on implicit bias, how bias contributes to systemic and persistent gender, class, racial and ethnic disparities in a variety of settings. Michael Roosevelt will prescribe strategies to mediate this kind of bias, while drawing upon findings in social psychology and brain science that help us better understand how we make decisions and what factors shape our decision-making.
This workshop will enable participants to:
• Define implicit bias;
• Apply knowledge of the effect of implicit bias to decision-making;
• Practice strategies to reduce bias.
Sandwiches will be available for purchase. Everyone is welcome.
Hosts: Forum committee and Humanists & Non-Theists

New Valencia Hall

COME EARLY for home-cooked lunch, served at 12:15 for an $8-10 donation (no one turned away for lack of funds).
Fighting Back Against Sexual Assault is the featured topic.
A global tsunami of truth-telling about sexual harassment is shaking empires from Hollywood to Congress. This discussion will go beyond the hashtag to understand the power imbalances of gender, race, and class that victimize women.
What fuels sexual assault? How have female workers and sisters of color fought it before, and how can we eliminate it now?

10. Tuesday, 3:30pm – 5:30pm, Noise Demo Against Racial Terror
Whole Foods Market (Oakland)
230 Bay Place
Whole Foods has been attacking folks of color within the past two years—going as far as attacking and racially profiling two black men, and a young, black teenager in recent reports. Their gentrifying organization must be held accountable for the threat they have posed to our community and it’s time that we make some noise to show resistance and intolerance to racial terror on any and all fronts.
Join us, next Tuesday (1/23) from 3:30-5:30 PM as we hold a noise demo in front of the store to demonstrate our intolerance for racism in our communities. Please bring any safe objects you have to make noise, signs, and bright spirits as we show up for the folks who were affected and targeted by this racist institution. It is imperative that we address racism on all fronts in our communities—especially in recent light of honoring King’s legacy and the path he has helped to pave with his work.
