ROSC’s Bedtime Reading for Change:
Parable of the Sower
“That’s all anybody can do right now. Live. Hold out. Survive. I don’t know whether good times are coming back again. But I know that won’t matter if we don’t survive these times.”
― Octavia E. Butler, Parable of the Sower
Wednesday Nights, 9PM-10PM
(Social “Hour” starts at 8:45 PM, Post Reading Discussion until 10:10 PM)

As the world at large continues to grapple with a global pandemic while simultaneously demanding justice and accountability for the violence and inequities faced by people and planet, ROSC remains steadfast in wanting to not only support those who are pushing for change through resistance, we also want to help to build connections and offer respite for those who feel tired in the struggle and need a place to connect with others. With all that’s going on in the world, we are aiming to respond in ways that will help build capacity for important work like the many mutual aid projects we’ve seen springing up locally and around the globe, and we also want to help create a culture of care through social change by human connection and appreciation for the art that reflects our truths.
