Newsletter: Week of May 1, 2017

From the Program Director

Sarah Chandonnet

 These are difficult times, as we watch the rights of the most vulnerable among us disregarded and trampled upon. How do we keep our spirits up and stay in community, as we hold our ground, fight back, and protect our democratic institutions?

Join us this Sunday, May 7, for a conversation with Judy Norsigian, longtime women's health activist and former executive director of Our Bodies Ourselves. She now volunteers for climate change efforts (for example, as part of the Newton Mothers Out Front team), continues to help with projects and fundraising at Our Bodies Ourselves, and is a board member of Community Works, whose 30 member agencies all work for social justice. 1:30-3:00pm, 30 JFK Street.
