Conversations in Community
MUUSJA’s Conversations in Community series is your opportunity to get to know, and be inspired by, some of our Unitarian Universalist activists and organizers from across Minnesota and the Dakotas. These conversations will give you the opportunity to get to know them, their work, and the spiritual grounding that sustains their efforts.
A Conversation and Book Launch with
Rev. Karen Van Fossan
Tuesday, October 3
6:30 – 8pm CST
All are welcome to join MUUSJA for a conversation with Rev. Karen Van Fossan, an abolitionist, minister, professional counselor, street chaplain, and former defendant in the Line 3 pipeline resistance. This special program will also celebrate the release of her new book, A Fire at the Center: Solidarity, Whiteness, & Becoming a Water Protector. The book takes readers from behind the scenes of the Dakota Access Pipeline conflict, to penitentiaries where prisoners of war have carried the movement onward, to the jail cell where Karen was held for protesting Line 3, to a reimagining of decolonized family constellations, and to moments of collective hope and strength.
