Spiritual Activism and Social Justice: Reflections from a Lifetime in Social Change Work with Ericka Huggins

The world continues to challenge our resolve and stamina with a seemingly endless deluge of causes and problems in need of our attention and care. Join Ericka Huggins for an inspiring evening of stories and resources for a sustainable life of action in the world.

For the past 37 years, Ericka has lectured across the country and internationally on issues relating to the well-being of women, children and youth; restorative justice as the antidote to punitive justice; whole being education, and the role of spiritual practice in sustaining activism and promoting social change. She spent 14 years in the Black Panther Party, eight years of which she was director of the renowned Oakland Community School from 1973-1981. During that time she became both the first black person and the first woman appointed to the Alameda County Board of Education. She has been an instructor at colleges in the Bay Area for the past 15 years.
