It was a bright shining moment when a faithful Bay Area activist community gathered to hear the legendary Pentagon Papers whistleblower speak at Historic Fellowship Hall at the Annual BFUU Hal Calstad Justice Awards & Benefit Dinner on 7-20-13. BFUU member and Social Justice Committee activist Phoebe Sorgen described how “uplifting” Daniel Ellsberg’s speech was and she described Patricia Ellsberg’s presentation as “empowering the audience, lifting us all up as heroes.” Photos by Vic Sadot and Leland Johnson.

Cynthia Jean Johnson was the MC for the evening and chief organizer of the annual event named for her long time partner, Hal Carlstad. Next door to Fellowship Hall in the Fireside Room on the second floor the Hal Carlstad Social Justice Center was founded on June 3, 2012. It is open from 1-5 pm Monday to Friday and it hosts the new Cynthia Jean Johnson Justice Library.  Cynthia was on day 34 of her Hunger Strike in Solidarity with the Hunger Strike Prisoners at the US base in Guananamo, Cuba.
