March 1, 2018 to March 31, 2018: Join the Let’s Talk: RC Online Book Club on the Riveters Collective Facebook page. Read Ijeoma Oluo’s book So You Want to Talk About Race and discuss how this book fits into your journey to racial understanding, but as Ijeoma herself requests, please don’t direct those stories at people oppressed for their race. Read more from Ijeoma Oluo’s Facebook post. Visit the RC Facebook page to join the discussion. **This discussion will last all of March.**

Saturday, March 24, 2018 from 10:00a.m.–1:00p.m.: March For Our Lives will take to the streets to end gun violence and mass shootings in our schools.
