Events of the past week or two have brought many American issues to the forefront and many people to a tipping point, myself included. What do you need to say that must be heard?

Join us for an evening of sharing in a judgment free space.

My story:

I feel undone. Our country seems so fragile at the moment. Since the shooting of the police officers in Dallas, I’ve been distraught.  Our neighbors should be safe. Our police officers should be safe at a peaceful protest.  And yet, my neighbors are not as safe as I am…because of our history of racism.  While many claim the color of our skin does not matter (because it shouldn’t), there are families who fear for their loved ones every day.  I’m angry.  I’m sad.  I want to stay home, where I feel safe. But being alone and safe is not the answer.  I want all my friends and neighbors to feel safe as they live their lives. It is important to me now in a visceral way that it wasn’t before.  I used to say, “it may be my problem, I’ll look at that later.” I have changed and shifted to say “NO MORE.”

Please join us Monday evening in a conference call: express yourself and listen while others share their story.  It is time for us to come together.

You make a difference!
