Please join us for the Racial Justice Organizing Meeting on Monday, February 12th! Based on your feedback, we will be working with a slightly different structure, allowing us to prioritize time to really connect and get organized in our sub-groups.
All those who wish to join the struggle for racial justice are encouraged to attend these monthly meetings hosted by the People of Color (POC) Caucus and Lost River Racial Justice on 2nd Mondays. With a firm start at 6pm, people are invited to arrive at the Root Social Justice Center in Brattleboro, VT at 5:45pm to mingle, snack and settle in. These monthly meetings are a continuation of purpose and membership of the BLM VT-South meetings, now under a new name and leadership structure for the past 7 months.
The space is fragrance and nut-free, wheelchair-accessible.
Bring snacks to share if you’re able!
Childcare will be provided.
ASL interpreters available upon request. Text 802-380-0546 or email email@example.com by Thursday 1/8 at 8pm.
*What will this meeting be like?* This meeting (and each of our monthly meetings) includes time and space for:
– Connecting with others invested in racial justice.
– Breakout time for the POC Caucus, a space for those who self-identify as people of color to build relationships, leadership capacity, and community organizing power
– Breakout time for Lost River Working Groups, including Fundraising (planning monthly benefit events), Ready Response (showing up for specific racial justice campaigns and actions), and Skill Building.
– Updates and announcements of upcoming events or ongoing projects
**The goal of this meeting structure is to build a strong multiracial movement for racial justice in our local area. Join us!**
Please share this announcement widely and invite your friends, especially people of color who might want to join the POC Caucus. (Also check out Soul Food Sundays and the I Am VT Too Project at www.therootsjc.org for other POC-only healing and relationship-building spaces!)
(Monday) 5:45 pm - 8:00 pm
