Community Events in November 2016
In challenging times like this, I find the need to be together with others struggling for justice. I personally have heard reports of racial slurs, islamaphobic actions, fear and intimidation here in Duluth. I want to be a part of those who stand up and say, “Not in our town. Not in our nation.” Since I send these events out, I am also sending out a link to a poem I wrote on the morning of the election – that has put into words some of what I am feeling. Know that I am glad that all of you are part of those I call neighbor.
