Racial Justice Dialogue: Dismantling Our Belief System Around Poverty

  • Common Street Spiritual Center 13 Common St. Natick, MA (map)

It begins with us. Minister Savina Martin, co-chair of the Massachusetts Poor People’s Campaign (PPC), will be our guest speaker and add some insights around the intersection of race and systems of poverty. Liz Spark, from the CSSC where we meet, will share her experience on the “Spill the Tea!” Massachusetts Truth and Poverty Bus Tour in Boston recently. Four other folks from the PPC, who recently came back from D.C.'s Moral Action Congress, will attend as well. We are honored to have these guests share with us; we hope you can join us too!

Our discussion will include:
What were the effects of poverty, or not, in your childhood? (Own personal experience or someone close to you...)
What does your definition of poverty look like?

Monthly meeting overview:
Please join in the conversation as we continue to get real about the problem of racism in our world, and move toward personal and collaborative action. Our Racial Justice Dialogues are opportunities to talk openly about racism and other forms of oppression in our society. Please join us to continue sharing our experiences, hopes and dreams about living in community beyond race. All are welcome.

- This group meets the first Saturday of each in the Moon Room on the 2nd floor. Come in the side door off of School Street. The meeting topics come from votes done at meetings.

- Please let us know your needs so we can help make the event accessible for you. Note: there is a ramp near the main entrance, and an elevator available. The elevator is tricky so please arrange to meet one of us five minutes or so before the meeting so we can help.

To help us be prepared for all participants, please RSVP if you can come to this meeting and update it if your plans change; use our Meetup page or email (
