Fall Programs – Adult Programming Committee

Activism with Joy

Here’s a lesson from activists on working for change while holding onto joy. 

In ‘The Lightmaker’s Manifesto’, Karen Walrond helps us name the skills, values and actions that bring us joy; identify the causes that spark our empathy and concern; and then put it all together to change the world. She shares activists’ fascinating stories from near and far, which demonstrate positive ways of making change. 

Author Karen Walrond is a lawyer, leadership coach, photographer and activist. She has travelled world-wide and serves on the board of the Houston Coalition Against Hate. 

A four-week book study on ‘The Lightmaker’s Manifesto’ offered by The Adult Programming Committee (APC) begins Wed. evening Oct. 19. Co-facilitators will be Shannon Breckman and Sonya Watson. The book is currently available for purchase at McNally Robinson or through Amazon.ca. Haven’t read the book? Excerpts will be provided for discussion. 

Our goal is to offer a hybrid model of in-person and Zoom participation, yet to be confirmed. Please register by leaving your name, email and phone number at adultprograms@uuwinnipeg.mb.ca. Thanks.
