PROGRAM: “Civil Rights:  Ideal vs Reality”
Kari Petrasek introduced Braden Pence, Civil and Criminal Public Defender in Everett. 
He defined civil rights as personal rights protected by law—statutes, remedies, etc., but conceded that the tension of ideal Justice is that the original definition was talking about white men, a concept of disregarding the genocide which occurred when taking land from those who lived here, displacing natives, keeping slaves and treating women as property.  We have the discomfort of this acknowledgement as justice evolves.   
We do have problems, things that make it harder for some people.  It keeps recurring, we compartmentalize it, we need to bring these issues home.  He used the red line districts as an example where the government racially discriminated with loans to create ghettos.  Now today’s example of the health care example:  addiction, mental health. People who have resources stay out of trouble vs those that don’t, get in trouble.
We need to expand the definition of who matters, what is protected to have reform.  For a more perfect union, we need to acknowledge that we aren’t perfect, it is never done.  Struggle continually with no end date.  It is a life-long work.  Questions and comments followed.
President Greg commented that the arc gets bent by your work, not by just talking about it.  He presented Braden with the acknowledgement of a gift to Domestic Violence; thanked the students; thanked Roy and Jim for bellringers.  He reminded us not to forget the survey, World Committee Service Committee at Ed’s tonight and adjourned the meeting at 1:00pm.
