The Peace and Social Concerns Committee is working to help New Garden Friends Meeting incorporate more immediate social and economic justice actions into our everyday lives. Thus, every weekly newsletter will include one Anti-Racist Action suggestion and one website whereby members can find minority-owned business to support, if they so choose. The Meeting is not endorsing or advertising these businesses; we just feel it’s important to spread dollars more equitably to all community members and entrepreneurs. Suggestions for future ideas/ submissions can be sent to Traci Claywell, 336-554-1534 by call/text or email to (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Anti-Racist Actions You Can Take Now:
“Get ready to dismantle white supremacy through education and action – each and every day” by subscribing to the “Anti-Racism Daily” online newsletter. Using clear, concise, and informative email pages, Founder Nicole Cardoza shows her 60,000-plus subscribers how racist practices and prejudicial paradigms infect and affect individuals’ approaches to everyday issues, including taxes, climate justice, child care, COVID, etc….followed by suggested actions that can be taken in response. The ARD newsletter is free of charge, although donations are accepted via Patreon, PayPal, or Venmo. Email can be received on a daily, or weekly, basis. Sign-up by visiting www.antiracismdaily.com and clicking the “subscribe” button.
Local Minority-Owned Business You Can Support Now:
Another Facebook Group to join…Search for and ask to join a private page with over 10,000 members, “GreensboroBLACK Food Mob”. You will have to read a few rules and answer a couple of questions before being allowed in, but once inside, you will find a smorgasbord of businesses, pictures, videos, and menus, all focused on Greensboro’s eclectic food community. You could begin by exploring the “discussion” and “media” tabs at the top. Although a little confusing at first, with just a little effort, it becomes a tantalizing experience and promises to create interest in never-heard-before restaurants and food trucks!
