THE PENALTY FOR SUCCESS: MY FATHER WAS LYNCHED IN ALABAMA (San Francisco)

Monday Night Philosophy investigates the painful reality that succeeding in business is not always an advantage in America. Josephine Bolling McCall's father, Elmore Bolling, was a successful entrepreneur in Alabama. He was lynched outside Montgomery in 1947 when the author was five years old. In her book, The Penalty for Success, McCall tells the story of her father’s murder and the impact it had—and still has—on her family and her community. After years of research, including interviews with relatives and elderly Lowndes County residents, McCall found answers to many troubling questions. Her journey of discovery presents a revealing narrative of a time, a place and a people, challenging us to rethink the reality of life for both blacks and whites in the rural South during Jim Crow. Elmore Bolling was murdered because he was too prosperous to be a black man in Alabama. Even though he was not hanged, mutilated or burned in front of a crowd of people, he was “lynched” by being shot six times in the front of his body with a pistol and once in the back with a shotgun, reinforcing the legacy of racial terror that has yet to be adequately addressed in America.

Indivisible SF Call In! at our Sunday Meeting

Join Indivisible SF for the first Indivisible SF “call-in”!

One of the key ways we hold representatives accountable is by calling their office and letting them know how what we want to see from them. By making these calls, we are able make big changes. For example, in 2017, we were able to save the Affordable Care Act by flooding the phonelines and helping save the lives of millions of people across the country!

Let’s keep this going! From 1-3pm, we will jam the phone lines of our Members of Congress, State Senators, Assemblymembers and Supervisors and tell them how we feel. Call scripts and phone numbers will be provided. Bring yourself, your phone (and a charger), and your voice!

The Women's Building is on 18th Street near Valencia, a short walk from the 18th and Mission MUNI stops or from 16th and Mission BART.

Women For Forests: Online Training For Women for Climate Justice

Join WECAN International on APRIL 3rd for 'Women For Forests' - the first session in our series of 2019 Online Education & Advocacy Trainings For Women For Climate Justice!

ABOUT: Women from across the world are exposing the intertwined root causes of forest destruction, gender injustice, and economic domination. They are rising up to protect vital forests ecosystems from deforestation, agribusiness, and a host of other threats. Through their work, they are protecting irreplaceable biodiversity and the sources of community life and livelihoods, while also spearheading efforts that sequester massive amounts of carbon, and thus help mitigate against the worst effects of global climate change. 

During the ‘Women For Forests’ training, we will explore various topics including: resistance efforts by Indigenous women in Brazil to protect the Amazon; inspiring examples of women planting trees and regenerating damaged lands in the Democratic Republic of Congo; efforts to protect the Tongass rainforest in Alaska; international forest policy that respects the rights of Indigenous Peoples and addresses root causes of forest loss; and other stories and lessons from women’s work to stand for global forests.

As part of WECAN International’s commitment to a climate justice framework, this training will not promote any of the false solutions often associated with climate-forest programs, including carbon offsets and other market mechanisms. Rather, speakers will focus on the grassroots, community-driven, and rights-based strategies and solutions being demonstrated by women around the world.

WHEN: Wednesday April 3rd, 2019 at 11:00am PST/ 2:00pm EST (US time zones, please check your own time zone to participate.)

WHERE: This training will be hosted via Zoom, a free program similar to Skype. Check back for call-in information.
