Hicks-Hudson reflects on Racism as part of First Thursday Lunch Series


Paula Hicks-Hudson (Ohio District 44 Representative and former Mayor of Toledo) will present Beyond the March: A Reflection and Discussion on Racism in the First Thursday luncheon series on February 7, 2019, at noon


Rep. Hicks-Hudson’s remarks will focus on what we do to tackle the day-to-day issues of relationship, justice, and mutual respect after the outward manifestations of demonstrations and marches are over. 


The event includes a simple soup-and-salad lunch at noon followed by Rep. Hick-Hudson’s presentation with Q&A discussion. The series is the result of a partnership between the Toledo Chapter of U.S. Catholic Priests and St. Paul’s Lutheran Church. 


According to St. Paul Pastor Pete Bowmer, “All people of all faiths need to go beyond ourselves, opening minds and hearts to value and respect the experiences of those who have been harmed by the evil of racism. We need to get together to look at today’s critical issues through the lens of social justice and the common good.” The theme of the series is “Culture at the Crossroads: Critical Issues of Our Time.” 


“To overcome discrimination, a community must interiorize the values that inspire just laws and live out, in day-to-day life, the conviction of the equal dignity of all. Rep. Hick-Hudson’s presentation will give us insight on how to do that,” said Fr. John Blaser of the AUSCP. 


First Thursday lunches take place at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, 428 N. Erie Street, Toledo, OH 43604 [directly across from the Lucas County Courthouse]. Cost is $15 for lunch and presentation (cash or check at the door). Financial assistance is available for those in need.

Pete Bowmer, pastor.pete@stpaulstoledo.org, 419-243-4214, or check us out at facebook.com/firstthursdaytoledo. Free parking is available in the Kwik lot adjacent to the church and at meters between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. The public is welcomed to attend.


Two presentations remain in the 2018-2019 series: On March 7, 2019, staff member from U.S. Rep Marcy Kaptur’s office, with topic to be announced; and on April 4, Terry Glazer, former CEO of United North with topic of “Organizing the Community for Social Action.”
