WASH MDC March Meeting
Saturday, March 10, 2018 our topic will be “Discussing Secular Social Justice with Juhem Navarro-Rivera & Heatherly Hodges “
The April conference includes topics such as ending everyday sexism, racial justice, the school-to-prison pipeline, immigration justice, intersectional advocacy and trans justice, and the intersection of decolonization and social justice activism. Based on speaker and audience interests e will feature some of these as part of our 90 minute meeting in March.
The meeting will be hosted by WASH’s Heatherly Hodges and include a perspective from political scientist Juhem Navarro-Rivera (https://juhemnavarro.net/) of Public Religion Research Institute and Demos.
Juhem specializes in American and Comparative political behavior.
Among his interest are the power of big money in American elections and how it affects underrepresented/racial groups getting to elective office, as well as the role of religion in US politics. He has written on rise of the Nones and of Latinos with no religious affiliation.
