Societal class equality at home and abroad will be explored at Lifetree Café at noon Monday, April 24.
The program, titled “Class Warfare: The Unending Struggle for Equality,” features filmed interviews with three people who have personally seen and experienced India’s caste system.
“Westerners can change our destiny,” says Melanie Hutchinson, a U.S. born teacher serving in India. “In the caste system, you can’t. What you are born into is what you are. Your caste determines your job, who you marry, what you eat, and even how you dress.”
Admission to the 60-minute event is free. Lifetree Café is located at Kokanee Coffee, 509 N. Fifth Ave., Sandpoint.
Lifetree Café is a place where people gather for conversation about life and faith in a casual, comfortable setting. Questions about Lifetree may be directed to Angela Reese at 208-597-7831.
