Workshop on Income Inequality Tuesdays through Feb. 13 at Bertschinger Center

On Jan. 9, 39 people attended the first session of the six-week Shoreline Workshop on Income Inequality. The workshop is presented by the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Door County, St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, Shepherd of the Bay Lutheran Church and Ephraim Moravian Church.

The two-hour session involved robust discussions about necessities of life beyond one’s basic needs and the impact of income and wealth inequality in the U.S. Many different views were offered and respectfully listened to in the four small groups which were formed after a short presentation.

The workshop continues Tuesdays, 7-9 pm, through Feb. 13 at Bertschinger Center in Egg Harbor. The workshop looks at the existing income and wealth inequality, how the U.S. got to this point and what can be done to lessen the income and wealth gap. Through short readings and videos the workshop examines national policy issues followed by group discussions. Attendance at all six weeks is recommended, but each session can stand alone. A $15 fee covers all six sessions. The fee is to be paid at the door. For more information contact Jim Black at [email protected].
