This event is free and open to the public. RSVPs are requested. RSVP here. 

Save My Seoul follows two Korean-American brothers as they discover rampant prostitution and sex trafficking in Seoul, South Korea. With the use of hidden cameras and access to pimps, johns, and sex-workers, Eddie and Jason explore and unravel the complexity of the sex trade in Seoul. They learn that this problem is rooted in issues far deeper than lost girls and lustful men. Instead, it's a consequence of the broken Korean culture that turns a blind eye to and condones one of the biggest human injustices of our generation.

We will be screening this film at noon on May 11, 2018, with a panel discussion following.

This film is rated TV-14 (This program contains some material that many parents would find unsuitable for children under 14 years of age.).

Faith, Food and Flourishing

Learn how to make healthy, locally grown food a reality for your congregation.

The Theological Commons at MTSO presents a day of focus and collaboration on food security, including preaching, networking, and an interactive workshop led by Rev. Dr. Heber Brown III. He will share his insights on the intersection of faith and creating church-based food networks that lead to long-term health sustainability. He has found that many churches already possess the tools and resources to build a flourishing community that addresses nutritional food security in urbanized neighborhoods. 

Individuals and churches are invited to join us for a day of learning and inspiration. Participants will leave this experience with a theological basis for food security, a strategic plan of engagement and a toolkit for leading their community to embrace personal healthcare.

Workshop leader

Rev. Dr. Heber M. Brown III is a community organizer, beginner farmer, social entrepreneur and pastor of Baltimore's Pleasant Hope Baptist Church. For nearly two decades, he has demonstrated a deep commitment to and advocacy on a myriad of social justice concerns. 

In 2015, Brown launched the Black Church Food Security Network, which combats food apartheid by providing seed funding and support to help congregations begin growing food on church-owned land. The network also serves as a food hub, linking black churches and black farmers in the Mid-Atlantic region in an effort to create a community-controlled, alternative food system based on self-sufficiency and black food and land sovereignty.

Brown is the recipient of numerous awards, including the Ella Baker Freedom Fighter Award. Grist.com named him among the “Grist 50: The 50 People You'll Be Talking About in 2016” - a list of “innovators, organizers, and visionaries who will lead us toward a more sustainable future.”

Women's Journeys, Women's Voices: The Refugee Experience

3-2018 Women 2018 Small.jpg

March 28th, 1:15-2:35 pm

142 Johnston, Miami Middletown

At the present time there over 22 million refugees worldwide registered with the United Nations. The United States welcomed nearly 45,000 refugees last year, and in the past year over 300 refugees were resettled in the Cincinnati area. While refugees are among us, in many cases they may be invisible and their voices not heard. This program offers the opportunity for us to hear the voices of women refugees living in Southwest Ohio. Invitations have been made to refugees from a variety of areas including Bhutan, Burundi, Iraq and Syria. By hearing refugee voices Southwest Ohio moves closer to becoming a welcoming community for refugees.

This event is open to the wider community. Sponsored by the Office of the Regional Director of Diversity and Multicultural Services and the Regional Associate Dean of Student and Academic Success. For more information please contact John Schaefer, 513 727-3204 or schaefjp@miamioh.edu (Miami  Middletown)

YWCA: Racial Justice Breakfast

Racial Justice Breakfast

The Annual Racial Justice Breakfast was established in 2001 to promote the YWCA’s mission to eliminate racism and create a safe space where participants can confront racism. Attendees experience a meaningful dialogue about racism’s personal and community-wide effects and hear from keynote speakers who have had a national impact on landmark civil rights cases.

March 28, 2018 - 7:30-9:30 a.m.
Cincinnati Music Hall

 Keynote Speaker: Dr. Fania Davis

Fania Davis is a social justice activist, civil rights trial attorney and restorative justice practitioner. As Co-Founder and Director of Restorative Justice for Oakland Youth (RJOY), she engages families, communities and systems to stop cycles of youth violence and incarceration. 

Coming of age in Birmingham, Alabama during the social ferment of the civil rights era, the murder of two close childhood friends in the 1963 Sunday School bombing crystallized within Dr. Davis a passionate commitment to social transformation. She has been active in the civil rights, Black liberation, women's, prisoners', peace, socialist, anti-imperialist, anti-racial violence and antiapartheid movements. And her commitment to promoting equity has remained strong for decades - from her role leading the international campaign to secure the release of her sister, Angela Davis, from prison in the 1970’s to her current focus on a truth and reconciliation process focused on the historic racial trauma that continues to haunt the United States.

Numerous honors include the Ubuntu Service to Humanity award, the Maloney award recognizing exceptional contributions in youth-based restorative justice, World Trust's Healing Justice award, the Tikkun (Repair the World) Award, the Bioneer's Changemaker Award, and the LaFarge Social Justice Award. She is also a Woodrow Wilson Fellow. The Los Angeles Times named Dr. Davis a "New Civil Rights Leader of the 21st Century."

The Adventure of Civility: Evening with Krista Tippett

KRISTA TIPPETT : A TAFT LECTURE

Tuesday, March 13, 7:00 PM

Our Taft Lecture series presents Krista Tippett, host and executive producer of “On Being” and winner of the 2014 National Humanities Medal for “thoughtfully delving into the mysteries of human existence.” Tickets are available via Eventbrite.

Ms. Tippett will be speaking on: The Adventure of Civility

Our young century is awash with urgent questions of survival, of meaning, of how we structure our common life and who we are to each other. And yet it seems we are more divided than ever before – unable to listen and speak across the differences we must engage to create the world we want for ourselves and our children. Krista Tippett’s public radio show and podcast, On Being, brings a vast range of voices to the animating questions at the center of life: What does it mean to be human, and how do we want to live? Her Civil Conversations Project has focused these questions on public life, in practical terms, for communities from the deep south to Harvard Law School. She will speak with us about how we can all begin to create the conversations we want to be hearing, where we live – and how communities of faith bring important wisdom to this 21st Century calling.
