Southern Indiana Equality’s annual meeting is on Thursday, December 8th, Details follow below, but first, what to talk about.
NOW IS THE TIME TO TALK ABOUT WHAT WE ARE ACTUALLY TALKING ABOUT, by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie (The New Yorker)
… Now is the time to counter lies with facts, repeatedly and unflaggingly, while also proclaiming the greater truths: of our equal humanity, of decency, of compassion. Every precious ideal must be reiterated, every obvious argument made, because an ugly idea left unchallenged begins to turn the color of normal. It does not have to be like this.
Here is the meeting announcement. I hope to see you there.
We hope to see you at Southern Indiana Equality’s annual meeting this week on Thursday, December 8th, from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. at Pride Bar + Lounge, 504 State Street in New Albany. This event will be a mix and mingle-style evening, with the goal of connecting and collaborating. Additionally, this event will be family-friendly and there will be wristbands available for those under age 21. There will be a full menu/bar open – plan an evening out.
After a whirlwind summer with the inaugural Jeff Pride Festival, Southern Indiana Equality has spent some time reflecting and thinking about the year ahead. We are looking forward to our upcoming annual meeting as an opportunity to collaborate, gather your input, and plan together for the year ahead to best address your goals for equality in southern Indiana. We want to be a group that serves the community with action and compassion.
We look forward to connecting with you at our meeting! Please let me know if you have any questions.
