We'll be honoring Plowshares activist Susan Crane, now in Dublin Federal Prison for her courageous witness at the Trident Nuclear Submarine Base in Washington State; Karen Pickett, tireless activist with Judi Bari for Earth First; Cindy Sheehan, anti-war activist-extraordinaire who first spoke at BFUU on July 4, 2004 just 3 months after her son Casey was killed in Iraq; and strong woman Carolyn Scarr, who tirelessly works for Peace and Justice as head of Ecumenical Peace Institute and leader of the 13 year vigil every week in front of Oakland Federal Building to educate our fellow citizens. The 4 Social Justice Awards will be given after a delicious vegetarian dinner by our professional caterer, Chris Planellas. There will also be a reception for the awardees (details to be announced later). Music by Stephen Esteban Meyers, Maxina Ventura, Vic Sadot, and others. This is a Fundraiser for our Fellowship Hall, which for over 50 years has served as a Community Center for many justice events, and has historically been the initiator of significant movements for change.
