There is a lot going on in the Women’s Center this week . . . maybe because even though the weather still feels like summer, the season is rushing to a close, fall is approaching, and with it a host of events that will focus out attention on gender, justice, and action.

Beginning today, Tuesday, July 26, it will be possible to join the team that is now being formed to raise funds for Louisville-area services for people with HIV/AIDS and their families (or donate to the effort, or both). The AIDS Walk happens this year on Sunday, September 25, starting at 1:00 p.m. at the Belvedere in downtown Louisville.

Wednesday, July 27, 12:30 p.m., the Katie Geneva Cannon Lecture Planning Group meets in the Women’s Center, to update and finalize plans for the lecture and the events on the following Monday. High on the agenda are handling next steps for publicity, reviewing developing plans for the Monday worship service, and encouraging committee members to prepare bios.

Wednesday, July 27, 7:30 p.m., the Transgender Day of Remembrance Task Force meets in the Women’s Center, to begin preparing for the Louisville area observance of the Transgender Day of Remembrance, November 20, and the Week of Awareness that precedes it.

About Ha_Qohelet

Ha_Qohelet is a transliteration of Hebrew definite article plus a feminine participle, all together meaning "the (feminine) one who assembles" or who calls together. Qohelet is the title of one of the books of the Hebrew Scripture, known in English as Ecclesiastes. The Women's Center at LPTS feels the epithet of Qohelet is a fitting one for what we do and are. The Women's Center is, indeed, a caller-together, a caller-to-wisdom, and an assembler -- of people, of ideas, of actions, and ultimately, we hope, of transformations in the world. In this context, Ha_Qohelet is the Director of the Women's Center, and Editor-in-Chief of Wimminwise.
