Progressive Club to hold monthly meeting

By Staff | Aug 12, 2020


The Progressive Club of the Islands will hold its virtual monthly meeting on Aug. 20 at 4 p.m.

The guest speaker is Jason Boeckman, organizer with the Southwest Florida Chapter of Showing Up for Racial Justice. He will discuss the mission of SURJ, a national network of white allies committed to the movement for racial justice, at a local level for Lee and Collier counties. It involves supporting local black-led movements and organizations through actions that advance the cause of racial justice, as well as focusing on education and training among white allies to engage in empathy-based dialogue.

A graduate of the Miami University in Ohio with a degree in public relations, Boeckman will delve into current policing problems, institutional racism and discuss details of the “Breathe” program.
