Sunday Assembly: The World on Your Plate

*Canceled to do weather* 

Hi folks, so sorry to say that we have canceled the January Assembly due to the impending ice storm. We don't want anyone out driving in those conditions, as much as we will miss seeing everyone! Lola's Room is not available on other days in January that would work for the Assembly, so we're going to have to wait until February 12th (see event HERE). In February, we'll talk about being a mindful cyborg, which is oddly so incredibly relevant. 

If you are on Facebook, join our Social Page to stay up to date on social events happening in January, because we don't want to wait until February to see you again. Click HERE to join. As always, you can find events here on the website. An event of special note is the launch of the next round of the Live Better Group, an 8-week long small group committed to supporting one another with a life goal. This is a valuable opportunity to tackle an important life goal while being supported by your fellow Assemblers. See details HERE.

Be safe this weekend & hope to see you soon!

- The Sunday Assembly Portland Team


Join us Sunday, January 8th in lovely Lola's Room with live music from the Sunday Assembly band, inspiring sharing from your community, and a thought-provoking lecture by Katie Cantrell, executive director of the Factory Farming Awareness Coalition.

Hidden in Plain Bite: The Surprising Power of Our Food Choices
Many of us feel helplessness and despair when confronted with the dire threats facing our planet (especially after the recent election). But one of the most effective actions we can take to help stop climate change, deforestation, and water and air pollution is well within our reach; it lies on our plate. Come learn about the ecological impacts of the food system and small, easy, delicious ways to make change.

Child care: provided in the Wonder Club 10:45am - 12:45pm. Parents, see details here:

Food Drive: Each month, we can "help often" by supporting Team Relief with a food donation. Please bring donations of unexpired, unopened, canned or packaged food items to the donation table before the Assembly begins. Food items will be used to support those in our community who are in need. 

About the Speaker:
Katie Cantrell is the founder and executive director of the Factory Farming Awareness Coalition. After graduating from UC Berkeley, Katie founded FFAC to educate people about the ecological and social justice hazards of industrial animal agriculture. She has since given over 250 presentations, to venues such as Yale, Stanford, and the Natural Resources Defense Council. Her materials have been used as a resource by food justice activists across North America.

Everyone is welcome, and our events are always free, always awesome.
