Women's Voices Raised for Social Justice

Raising Awareness of Racial Justice

Every other month, a high quality, carefully vetted book focusing on racial justice issues will be selected for participants to read and discuss.

Anyone is welcome to come. The group meets at the Maplewood Richmond Heights Center. Visit their website womensvoicesraised.org for more specific information.
