BOOK LAUNCH: China’s Revolution and the Quest for a Socialist Future w/ Ken Hammond & Sheila Xiao, 3p. Hybrid event. Long the most prosperous and sophisticated country in the world, China was subjected to the military, economic, and political domination of Western imperialism for over a hundred years. This volume traces the crisis of Old China and revolutionary struggle up to 1949, the development of New China with Mao Zedong, reform under Deng Xiaoping, and the beginning of a new era led by Xi Jinping. China has generated contradictions as well as dramatic growth in education, health care, and other social services. But the process of socialist construction remains an unfinished and ongoing venture, and the future of the revolution is very much a work in progress. Come with your questionsHall and observations—even better, bring a friend! This event will be in-person and streamed on YouTube. Buy the book online HERE (1804books.com/products/chinas-revolution-and-the-quest-for-a-socialist-future). (This will not be in time for the event but you can read it later too.)

From Conflict To Community: Transforming Conflicts Without Authorities, Online book club, Four Mondays 4-530p, . A perfect book discussion group for the movement to build a culture of active nonviolence! You will find volumes to talk about in this 4-week book group on Gwen Olton’s compelling book. Facilitated by Pace e Bene staff member Rivera Sun, each week connects a set of chapters to our personal experiences and situations. On the last week, Author Gwen Olton joins us for a Q&A session. In divisive and contentious times like these, building our ability to handle conflict is essential. From family disputes to incidents in the streets, we need strengths and skills for sorting out the heated moments that are cropping up everywhere. From Conflict To Community is a book that helps us see our nonviolent capacity to deal with a wide range of challenges. It also directly invites us to do so without reliance on the police or other authorities. (An approach that aligns with many aspects of social justice work and our vision of a nonviolent culture.) Bring a friend. Get your book. And get ready for a powerful 4-week discussion group! $65, scholarships available. You need to purchase the book separately. paceebene.org/events/2023/5/9/from-conflict-to-community-transforming-conflicts-without-authorities

Hydrogen + Health: Webinar on Hydrogen Blending. 6p.Washington Physicians for Social Responsibility hosts this webinar on the dangers of hydrogen blending in home appliances. RSVP. https://psr.org/event/hydrogen-health-webinar-on-hydrogen-blending/


“What Is a Good Job Now?” in Health Care, A Zócalo/The James Irvine Foundation Event Series; live in AZ or online, 6p PDT. Moderated by Cresencio Rodriguez-Delgado, KVPR News Director. While agriculture consumes more land and gets more notice, health care employs more people and represents a bigger piece of Fresno’s economy. But just as access to health care is profoundly unequal, so are pay and working conditions in health jobs. And the pandemic and health facility closures, as with Madera Community Hospital, have added to the stresses and insecurities of working in health care. How can we improve the security, work, and health of all caregivers and other workers—clerks, janitors, subcontractors—who toil in health institutions? What ideas do workers themselves have for enhancing health care, both for patients and caregivers? And how can we elevate the importance of the fast-growing, lower-income jobs in this sector—like nursing assistants and home health care workers?


Public health professor Helda Pinzón-Perez, health care workforce researcher Janette Dill, and in-home supportive services provider Martha Valladarez visit Zócalo on site in Fresno to discuss how to build a healthier health care workforce. Live simultaneous ASL and Spanish translation of the discussion will be provided. REGISTER HERE: https://www.zocalopublicsquare.org/event/good-health-care-job/

“Oppenheimer” film premier. Physicians for Social Responsibility, & allied anti-nuke organizations including Back from the Brink coalition and Ploughshares Fund will be working together to help you utilize this “teachable moment” for a new generation to grapple with the realities of  nuclear weapons. With local partners, Ploughshares is organizing film screenings in seven U.S. cities. If you’d like access to more information and materials, please stay tuned to psr.org or get in touch with PSR Nuclear Weapons Abolition Program Director, Martin Fleck, mfleck@psr.org The content of the film has been kept under wraps. It is safe to assume that the original Trinity bomb test in New Mexico will be rendered in surround sound and technicolor, but what about the humanitarian impact of uranium mining, nuclear testing (including Trinity), and the bombs detonated over Hiroshima and Nagasaki? Will the film portray the present-day nuclear dangers that Oppenheimer warned of?

It will be an impactful day as we are dedicating ourselves to passing out hygiene kits and bottles of water to individuals who live in and near Skid Row. We do not take our donated items to local shelters, instead, we walk 2 miles round trip in order to take donations directly to individuals in need. We will meet @ Pershing Square at 6th and South Olive. We’d like to invite you to bring hygiene kits and bottles of water so that we can help even more people in our community. If you don’t have anything to bring, STILL COME, the most important part is you and the conversations and smiles we will provide! If you are bringing items that are not in bags, please plan to arrive by 8:30 so that we may pack them prior to our walk. We are a group of ordinary people, helping people in need in an extraordinary way. And we need you, and your heart to serve, in order to make an immediate impact in our community. We hope to see you at the 11th annual event that will take place at 9am in Los Angeles, California on July 29, 2023. Plan to meet at 6th and S. Olive Street (nearest Metro station is Pershing Square). Skid Row is an area in Downtown Los Angeles that houses up to 11,000 homeless individuals.

Continuing, Upcoming & Ongoing Events:


Notice: AfGJ, funding agent for Change-Links, has been under economic attack by right-wing media which convinced the company that handles its credit card donations to block AfGJ and its projects. It is critical that Change-Links donations avoid the use of credit cards for this reason for now. Ditto for any other organizations under AfGJ’s financial umbrella. It is also helpful to send check donations directly to AfGJ to keep them solvent. Info: afgj.org/sos-afgj-has-been-attacked
