POSTPONED Adult Ed – Why Bother? Evidence for Hope and Action in an Unfinished World
May 16 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

The world is much better. The world is awful. The world can be much better. All
three statements are true.
Erica Groshen will coordinate the discussion – Why bother with social action or tikkun olam? Come learn about the many ways in which life has improved over time. These advances give us solid grounds for hope and motivate us to action. We need to prevent media reports and naysayers from depressing us into inaction.
With the help of several TBE members, we’ll review objective, understandable evidence on such topics as violence, life expectancy, education, extreme poverty, and civil rights. And, we’ll remind ourselves how these have been achieved, particularly through the actions of normal people, as voters, volunteers, donors, workers, consumers, and educators.
