    January 2019 Lunch and Learn

    Waveland Hall

    Plymouth Women’s Lunch and Learn on Jan. 17 will feature the AMOS program “Let’s Talk”, a team of community volunteers collaborating with students, teachers and administrators in the Des Moines Public School system. The goal of Let’s Talk is to implement restorative justice practices and decrease the disproportionate number of students of color suspended and referred to the juvenile justice system – immediately disrupting the school to prison pipeline.

    We will have two speakers that afternoon. Harvey L. Harrison is a retired lawyer, now engaged in school mediation projects and racial justice advocacy. Harvey has worked extensively with local and statewide groups to educate, create programs, and develop legislation to promote racial justice locally and statewide. Cheryl Hayes is a social activist whose focus is keeping youth off the school to prison pipeline. She has been a member of the AMOS juvenile justice team, volunteered as a mediator and circle keeper, and is currently coordinator of the Let’s Talk program.

    You can register below or on Sunday, Jan. 13 in Waveland Hall after services. As always, men are welcome and we hope to see you there. If you forget to make a reservation, you are certainly welcome to bring your own lunch and enjoy our program.
