RAUL MATTA
"Dropping a Wrench in the Military Recruitment Machine"

Every day countless youth, primarily low-income youth and youth of color, are targeted by the United States Armed Services for enrollment.  Over and over again they tell lies and make false promises to manipulate young people into signing up to "serve their country".  Raul will discuss with us the work being done on a state and national level to empower youth and young adults to speak for themselves and organize together against the military industrial complex.

Raul Matta works with the American Friends Service Committee (AFSC) in Western Massachusetts on counter-recruitment in schools and with HIPP (Help Increase the Peace Program).  He is also a member of the newly developed Anti-Racism Collective (ARC) at Hampshire College.

THE JUSTICE SCHOOL -- FOR CHILDREN AND YOUTH!

The Justice School is a new social justice program for children and youth on Sundays at 11:00am at Community Church.  Director JooYoung Choi has developed a terrific curriculum to teach and learn from young people about social justice and how to live it. The program is free and you may enroll your child at any time during the year. We invited you to visit the Justice School one Sunday to see what it's about, or go to www.thejusticeschool.org for more details.

Contact JooYoung at jooyoungc at gmail.com or 617.266.6710 if you want to receive Justice School updates, or for any questions you may have.

LUNCH ON SUNDAYS, 12:30PM

On Sunday after our morning programs, we have lunch with one another in the Guatemala Room (3rd floor), prepared by our cook Luis Alonso Guzman.  Enjoy a delicious lunch with friends!  A small contribution is requested to help cover lunch expenses.
