  2. SOMA Wishing Trees for an end to anti-Asian racism

    May 1, 2021, 9:00 AM - May 31, 2021, 9:00 PM @ Spiotta Park

    SOMA Wishing Trees For an end to all anti-Asian racism and in honor of all in the AAPI community directly and indirectly affected by violence and hate. Make a wish. Write it on a tag. Red represents Strength and Luck | White represents Mourning. Tie your tag to the string on the SOMA wishing trees for Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month in May 2021. Ask your friends and family to do the same. You can make our collective wishes come true by taking action to understand how the exclusion of Asians from racial discourse and community visibility leads to anti-Asian racism and enables the continued dismissal of Asian relevance in racial justice, community diversity, and school integration agendas. Sponsors: South Orange Village Township of Maplewood SOMA Action Racial Justice SOMA Action Religious Justice SOMA Asian SOMA Justice

Peace and Community Justice Speaker Series

  1. Peace and Community Justice Speaker Series

    May 2, 2021, 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM @ Virtual

    Dr. Bernard LaFayette, Jr. has been a Civil Rights Movement activist, minister, educator, lecturer, and is an authority on the strategy on nonviolent social change. Join us for an evening of exchange with Dr. Forrest Pritchett and youth activists. The Peace and Community Justice speaker series in partnership with South Orange Community Care and Justice initiative and Seton Hall University is seeking community unification and restorative practices through facilitated dialogue, collaborative problem solving, and non-directive forms of mediation. Community Care and Justice (CC&J) is led by core community values such as universal dignity and worth, social justice, and the importance of human relationships and integrity. It is imperative as we lead initiatives surrounding restorative and transformative practices that we also lean on our history of accomplishments from leaders such as Dr. Bernard Lafayette and Dr. Forrest Pritchett.
