Sunday, November 11 –  Kimberly Tanner, What it means to Side with Love”

The history of the Side with Love campaign (formerly the Standing of the Side of Love campaign) will be discussed along with ways that the movement continues to fight injustice in our world. In particular, we will learn about the recent name change and how it represents the fight against ableist language. Finally, we will contemplate how we can actively Side with Love in our local community and beyond.
