May 20 – Revolutionary Love & The Poor People’s Campaign – presenters, Beth Taylor & Nancy Weston

The greatest social reformers in history grounded entire movements in the ethic of love. Valarie Kaur calls us to reclaim love as a public ethic, reframing it as a sweet form of labor that is fierce, bloody, imperfect and life-giving in her Ted Talk on Revolutionary Love. She dives into what Revolutionary Love is and how we might equip our community with tools to labor in love – love for others, our opponents and ourselves. We’ll also talk about the Poor People’s Campaign 40 Days of Action, which kicks off in May and is born of a movement very much rooted in Revolutionary Love.

[Note: If you have questions, suggestions, or are interested in leading a discussion, please contact Cari Poole or any of our Breakfast Forum volunteers: Frank Stone, Fred Bomberger, John Kennedy and Dan Poresky.]


From a Transition Perspective:

This series provides a means for “rethinking”: getting at the changes in thinking/paradigms that are needed for transitioning to resilient communities.
