Grassroots Organizing & Benedictine Values...Say What?
Lunch and Learn event sponsored by CSBSJU Beneditice Institute
Tuesday, December 7
11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. 
Upper Gorecki, St. Ben's
registration required

In the 1960s, young activists in the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC-pronounced "Snick") united with local people in the Deep South to build a grassroots movement for change that empowered Black communities and transformed the nation. These young people embedded themselves in communities, listening to, respecting, and being guided by the local people they worked with. How SNCC organizers organized and the day-to-day living out of Benedictine values have fascinating parallels. In this Lunch and Learn, Karlyn Forner, grants partner and historian with the Movement History Initiative, will share some observations and reflections on how grassroots organizing and Benedictine living align.
