On Sunday, May 6, we will be starting a 5-week class called Gender Politics, the final segment of this year’s adult education classes focusing on public ethics. This class will take place every Sunday through June 3 at 10 a.m. in the Club Room and concludes with Westminster’s participation in Sacramento’s Gay Pride Parade and Festival.
