Bringing together the hard reality of our history of racial inequity with a chance for reflection, shared questioning and opportunities for healing, this film screening will present an Emmy award winning documentary.
In Traces of the Trade, Producer/Director Katrina Browne tells the story of her forefathers, the largest slave-trading family in U.S. history, which chronicles her family’s journey of reckoning with their ancestors’ and New England’s complicity in slavery. As their journey informs a painful past, it also raises challenging questions for today which will stir viewer’s questions and concerns.
The screening will be followed by a dialogue at 8:00 p.m. facilitated by Katrina Browne and Elon Cook, Humanities Consultant at the Robbins House, an African American historic house in Concord. The dialogue will include simple, accessible interactive exercises that will invite participants to share their reactions to the deep material in the film in a full way – from heart, body, mind and spirit. The screening and discussion take place September 29, 2016 at 7pm in Concord Massachusetts. Continue reading

I am a mother, an activist, an organizer, a permaculturalist, an environmental planner, and a third generation Unitarian Universalist living near Lake Champlain in Vermont. In the past decade, I have worked with women in permaculture, with racial and economic justice committees, and with food education.
Last month, I was generously offered complementary registration to attend the North American Permaculture Convergence (NAPCII) in Hopland, California from September 14-18, 2016. I will join the “Women and Permaculture” Working Group, represent the Northeast Women in Permaculture Gathering (NEWIP) and connect our networks so that we might shape communities for the benefit of everyone in them.
However, I still need to raise money to get to California and cover my expenses while I am there. I am just $700 away from achieving this goal in service to building Beloved Community.
I will be able to achieve this goal with the help of my friends and “siblings” in organizing and activism. Any effort to help me participate at the convergence will be deeply appreciated.
Please help spread the word! Continue reading

West Shore Unitarian Universalist church sits on a busy street in Rocky River. Our main “draw” is from people who drive by the church and are curious about it.

The church needs a new sign that is perpendicular to the road with messages that reflect the vitality of the people inside and the importance of our faith to the wider world. Continue reading
