    Racism in America and Why We Should Care

    https://diovermont.org/2019/12/15/  Sponsored by

    The Vermont Racial Justice Alliance and
    Good Shepherd Lutheran Church

    Hosted by Good Shepherd Lutheran Church
    273 Vermont Route 15, Jericho, Vermont, at 6:30 pm

    Moderated by the Reverend Dr. Arnold Isidore Thomas, Pastor

    How far have we come as Americans in confronting racism? This is a topic that remains so intimidating and painful that we prefer not to talk about it in public for fear of what we might say or reveal, or how others might see or treat us. In this forum series, we wish to create a safe space where we can speak openly and honestly as people of good intent who seek the best for each other and our nation as we honestly face the racial divisions of our past and present with the hope of reconciliation.

    Each forum is a potluck gathering where we invite you to share a dish along with your thoughts.

    The realities of climate change are being felt intensely in communities across the country, and the 2020 elections are poised to determine our fate. Advocacy is increasing, but opposition remains formidable. How can we make climate a winning issue in 2020, and make certain our leaders implement policies that ensure a healthy, just and prosperous future?

It will be bigger and bolder than ever, designed to build political will for climate solutions and a broader, more inclusive movement.
