Time to Mobilize? Responding in the Age of Trump

Our meeting is coming up this Wednesday, Nov. 16.   It begins with a 6:30 potluck and ends at approximately 8:30.  We meet at First United Church of Christ, 1500 Tiffin Rd., Fremont.  You are welcome to invite friends.

We will hold a roundtable discussion to learn what members view as the most pressing concerns arising from the election of Donald Trump.   Then we’ll proceed to our major question:  What shall we do in response both as individuals and as a group?

We would like to support each other in our personal responses, and we would especially like to explore what we can do as a group (either locally or as part of a larger mobilization).  Our Facebook page has a few useful links about what people can do next.  Here are two of them:
Dave Pasch will update us on what Bernie Sanders is organizing through his movement, Our Revolution.  You may have other suggestions you’d like to share.

Last week, we shared an email with you from the Cleveland Catholic Worker that operates a drop-in center in a poor neighborhood.  They are out of blankets, coats, boots, hats, gloves, toiletries, sleeping bags, etc. for the homeless who come to them.  If you’d like to donate any items, please bring them to the meeting.  Thanks!

Peace and solidarity,

Josie
