If you weren’t able to be present for the Community Listening Forum please read this beautiful and moving piece by Pastor Laura Fitzpatrick-Nager of the First Congregational Church in East Haddam. It captures the energy and intention of the space.
“We watched transfixed as a second grader (the only child present in the forum) got up to speak and comfort the crying mother of a classmate he recognized. Tissues were passed up front for her as she cried for her two children who’d come home from school the day after the election confused as to whether or not, as people of color, they would be rounded up and have to move.”
If you’d like to be involved please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
