October 17: Restoration of Felon's Voting Rights
Discussion on Amendment 4
John Hendrick, Public Defender
Christie Utt, Former Clemency Attorney and Former Prosecutor
The restoration of felon's voting rights is on the ballot as an amendment in the November election. Why is this making national news? What is the current policy in place? What would it do if Amendment 4 were passed? Our speakers will address these and other related issues in preparation for the November vote. We have solicited speakers who represent both support and opposition to the amendment to allow us to be informed voters as we seek to faithfully follow Christ into the world.
October 24: Juvenile Justice Panel
Jason Welty, Meredith Stanfield, and Charlie Dodson. These faith members have all vocationally worked with the Juvenile Justice System. They will address the issue of the alarming rate at which juveniles are being incarcerated and dialogue about what is being done, or could be done, to address this issue.
November 7: Book Talk: Climate Church, Climate World
Presbytery of Florida's Stewardship of Creation Enabler, Pam McVety, will join us to discuss Antal's book. Here's one review of it: Antal argues that climate injustice is a force that amplifies every other social injustice and that without a whole and restored earth we won't achieve a whole and restorative society. In urging the church to deeply consider its obligation in calling society to action, this book will help Christians both congregationally and individually to act in response to climate change and maintain an outlook of Christian-centered hope while doing so.
November 14: Hate Crimes and Our Response
Lecia Brooks, Southern Poverty Law Center. The SPLC is at the forefront of exposing hate crimes in the U.S. They work not only to fight hate but to teach tolerance and seek justice. Ms. Brooks will hare about their work and what we as individuals and a community can do to help put an end to hate in our community.
