Click here to register.
There are many groups to be recognized in March as noted in the calendar below. Thanks to NIOT friend, Maria-Cruz Garcia, for bringing it to our attention.
At 7pm this coming Monday, March 1st, our March Continuing Conversations on Race and White Privilege will focus on Not in Our Town’s mission and the concept of white supremacy — how it’s enabled, how it showed up and showed off at the insurrection at our nation’s Capitol on January 6, 2021, and how we can work to challenge white supremacy locally and daily. We are especially looking forward to benefitting from the perspectives of a few of the newly-named members of our Youth Advisory group!
As usual, we will be partnering with our friends at the Princeton Public Library, and if you register here before 10am on Monday, you should receive the Zoom link to our free gathering at that point. (If you register after that, the link will be sent out in batches periodically.
