A local advocacy group is hosting the second of three online summits on social justice this Saturday, Feb. 27.
Sponsored by the organization C.R.A.S.H., the event will feature speaker Nijmie Dzurinko, Co-Founder of Put People First-PA and Co-Chair at PA Poor People's Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival; and Kevin Ressler, the president and CEO of the United Way of Lancaster County, who will facilitate a "conversation dealing with disparities in our local communities."
C.R.A.S.H. advocates for criminal justice reform and economic and social changes. The name stands for "Collective Resistance Acting in Solidarity for Humanity."
"We will be focusing on the specific events that have occurred here in Lancaster in the past few months and and what needs to be addressed in order for there to be collective change for our community," C.R.A.S.H. said in a statement.
Saturday's event on "Mobilization" follows a session, titled "Awareness," that took place in December. The third forum, "Action," is planned for April.
The summit is being put on in partnership with We Can't Wait PA, a coalition of community organizers; and the United Way of Lancaster County.
