An Invitation to Connect

For those of you who are Portland based, I'm giving a talk on Justice Centered Social work at PSU next week.  The talk is hosted by the Portland Chapter of the Social Welfare Action Alliance  (http://www.socialwelfareactionalliance.org/) which completely rocks as an ally-activist community.  (you can join for not very much money AND you can subscribe to the Journal of Progressive Human Services if you join, for also not very much money. Totally a worth-while investment in your continuing progressive education!!) Here is the SWAA announcement, hope to see some of you there: 
We are already excited for our first Red Lunch Box!

Join us on Wednesday, October 12th 4:00 - 5:15 Room #620 at the School of Social Work at PSU.

Heather Greene is our first Red Lunch Box presenter - she is a dynamic social worker who will be discussing social justice centered social work.
