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, by phone/text at 336-554-1534 or at (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Anti-Racist Actions You Can Take Now:
Consider joining the NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People) by exploring its website, www.naacp.org, just in time for its (virtual) 111th National Convention scheduled for September 13-26, 2020, #WEAreDoneDying. Adult membership levels begin at $30. Learn about the organization’s history, priority issues, and voter mobilization efforts. Contributed by Janet Inmon
