The presenters from the People’s Institute have a conflict and can’t join us this month for their special presentation of Undoing Racism. But we anticipate that they’ll be able to do their intro session for us at a future Meetup. Toward that end, what we can do on Sunday is hold a preview discussion among ourselves around the themes of how to encourage diversity in cohousing and Undoing Racism in general. You might want to reference:
Additionally, we’ve added a presentation to the agenda: Steve Welzer attended the Northeast Regional Cohousing Summit in Amherst, MA in September, during which he got a chance to tour no fewer than eight communities (how lucky Massachusians are to have so many intentional community options!). He has pictures and commentary that he’ll share with us.
We’ll gather in Bloomfield (25 Yantecaw Avenue) for our Meetup on November 11, and we’ll start with a potluck luncheon at Noon, as usual. Please bring a dish to share. RSVP to https://www.meetup.com/EcoVillage-New-Jersey-Meetup/events/255399110/
See you there!
P.S. Save the date for the Ecovillage NJ Holiday Party: Sunday, December 9, 2018 (most likely in Basking Ridge).
