"I'm writing to ask you both to come yourself and invite others to our fourth annual Equity Summit on March 15th, 2014 from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at First United Methodist Church on 1020 South Beretania Street. This year's Equity summit will be a little different; it will be issue workshops in the morning, and we will board the buses for actions and prayer vigils in the afternoon. Its really important that we get the word out to all our churches, so please tell people this weekend.
Here is an overview of the exciting things we'll be doing:
9:00 - 9:20. Opening Plenary celebrating our victories from last year, and featuring a speech from a guest (possibly Dwight Takamine the current State Director of Labor), as well as a thank you to several groups that have helped us over the last year.
9:30 to 10:45 First Workshops: Minimum Wage (featuring a return for Jack Temple, the leader of the fast food organizing from around the county); Clean Elections (led by our friends at Common Cause); a class for non English speakers preparing for the driver's test (these are members from FACE churches who worked on the translate the driver's test campaign preparing for the first set of tests).
11:00 - 12:15 Second Workshops: Immigration Reform, Building a Sutainable Energy Future, and Aging and Long Term Care
Following the workshops we will load busses to go to three locations where we will hold prayer vigils/actions related to the issues of minimum wage, energy, and immigration."
