3/31: Open Community Meeting to Move Lost River Racial Justice Forward

please join usPlease join us on THURSDAY March 31st
6:30-8pm at The Root Social Justice Center, Brattleboro.


Lost River Racial Justice is having it’s first open community meeting for those interested in getting more involved with racial justice organizing in the tri-state area!!


Join Us! Come meet with members of Lost River Racial Justice, a chapter of the national organization Showing Up for Racial Justice*, to learn about the work that we’re doing in Windham County, VT; Franklin County, MA; and Cheshire County, NH.  We will briefly update folks on our current projects & then spend the majority of time plugging folks in to existing working groups and listening to what you want to do! Current working groups include: Film Committee, Ready Response Team, SURJ Liaisons, and Media/Website/Communications. We are excited to brainstorm new working groups based on folks’ interest.

About LRRJ: For the past six months, LRRJ has hosted film nights, a rural racial justice study group, and attended actions and events to uplift the voices and experiences of communities of color. LRRJ operates as a closed collective of women and/or queer and/or transfolks, all of whom currently identify as white. Our organizational vision is to create a committed multi-racial closed collective that operates as a steering committee to hold the vision and unity of the group, while working groups are open to all identities interested in engaging in the work of the organization. We are excited to continue with the work we have been doing and take on new projects based on folks’ interest and capacity!

Accessibility: The Root is wheelchair accessible. Please come fragrance free to make this space accessible to as many folks as possible. Childcare provided as needed–please contact us at  by 3/20 if you would like childcare.

*Although SURJ nationally focuses specifically on engaging more white people in the fight for racial justice, Lost River is explicitly invested in multi-racial organizing as we fight to uplift the voices and experiences of communities of color in our region.
