Friday, January 20, 7:30 a.m. - 10 a.m.
St. James Episcopal Church, Faith in Action Bay Area, and the San Francisco Housing Rights Committee are creating a space on Inauguration Day for people to express their commitment to peace, justice, and the dignity of every human being. In a time of fear and division, this is an opportunity to experience community and take positive action. Beginning at 7:30 a.m., there will be a light breakfast available in the Parish Hall at St. James, and we invite people to participate in facilitated table conversations from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m. This is a safe space to share with others about how the election has affected you, your fears and your hopes for the future. From 9 a.m. to 10 a.m., a variety of community-serving organizations will be represented at a community action fair in the courtyard of St. James. They will provide information about volunteer opportunities and organizing efforts to protect and defend civil rights, immigrant communities, the social safety net, and the environment. The church also will be open for quiet prayer and meditation. We want to stress that this is an inclusive secular event, and we welcome any and all concerned citizens. Click here to RSVP. This event is free, but you must RSVP to attend the breakfast, as space is limited.
