Please join SB 52 supporters Senator Kevin De Leon, Assemblymembers Steven Bradford and Reggie Jones-Sawyer, and other SB 52 supporters and local activist leaders to kick off the Los Angeles-area legislative campaign for the California DISCLOSE Act!
Not only will best-selling author Marianne Williamson give the keynote talk, and a workshop, there will be workshops bringing together activists and contemplatives on topics ranging from Kundalini yoga, Sufism, Kabalah, and Christian meditation to environmentalism, just peacemaking and gun violence reduction. Workshop presenters include Rev Ed Bacon, Maher Hathout (founder of the Muslim Public Affairs Council), Glen Stassen (Just Peacemaking), and many more–over 30 total!
The speakers will examine unjust U.S. detentions and prosecutions, whether at the internment camp at Guantánamo, in domestic prisons and jails, or at ICE immigration detention centers; explore how racism and anti-Muslim propaganda are being utilized to enable and normalize these unjust detentions and prosecutions, and contextualize these in the ongoing if rebranded so-called “war on terror.”
