Whether you believe in the random eventuality of life from gasses and plasma, or believe in some cosmic coherent motive (call it God), or in some other explanation for "how did consciousness come into being?" you believe in some truth. Let's call your belief in that truth "theology," and now we have a starting place for a discussion about the impulse to defend and advance the right of workers to get their fair share.
Come along on a walking tour which nominally is about San Francisco social movements, but indeed is an interactive exploration of the grounds for championing people justice. Our premise: the value of habitat is a commonwealth because we are self-aware of habitat being a "condition of existence."
During the walk we connect the Black Liberation movement with "back to the land" hippiedom, while drawing parallels with the 1840's Mormon hegira, LGBTQ struggles, and Feminism . . . and more.
And yes, on the heels of Independence Day we catechize your knowledge of the Liberty Bell. There is in fact a theological intersect between the Fourth of July and your interest in justice. Come and get it!
Free. Provocative. Aerobic.
