[VIRTUAL] Ensuring Indigenous Rights, Shmita Speaker Series

Date: June 13, 2021
Time: 10:00 am - 11:00 am

All year Ekar in Denver is partnering with local and national organizations to explore the connections between the ancient Biblical agricultural tradition of Shmita (“release”) -- the Sabbatical year -- and contemporary issues of economic, environmental and food justice. Learn from grass-roots movement leaders and activists about what you can do to create a just community. The next Shmita year begins this August.

This session we will hear from Renee Millard-Chacon, Youth Program Development Coordinator, Spirit of the Sun and Leora Cockrell, (she/they pronouns), organizer with Jews on Ohlone Land.

Sunday, June 13 | 10 - 11 am
