Our CA/NV Conference United Methodist Women are offering a virtual Social Action event, “A Path Appears.” The focus of the event is “Transforming Lives: Prison and School Reform.”
Saturday, March 20, 2021
- Dr. Karen Gedney, Retired prison physician, catalyst for prison reform and mentor
- Matthew D. Ochs, Social Studies teacher, Reno High School
- Hannah Branch, Students for Change, Washoe County School District, NV
- Aliza Davis, Founder, Reno High School Black Student Union
- Marine Heath, Helen Pacheco, Amy Nguyen, Vanessa Medina, Organizers, Washoe County School District Diversify our Narrative
In this exciting event, we have a retired prison doctor and change maker speaking. In addition, perhaps as many as 10 high school students, all female, will talk about the work of 3 organizations they have founded that promote inclusion and work for change in the school district. Because of our young speakers, we encourage making a special effort to reach out to young people in our church to register and participate.
