Come see us at our next meeting on January 29th, 2019

Our meeting begins at 7:00pm with announcements and introductions. We will have group sharing and discussions until 8:00pm. Depending on the size of the group, we may have one group discussion, or break into smaller groups. Michelle Fox-Phillips will be available to lead a separate Transgender Support Group during our group sharing from 7:00 – 8:00pm, if needed.

After our support session, we break for refreshments. Our speaker is Natasha Thomas-Jackson from MOASH. She will be speaking about “intersectionality” and the importance to social justice. It’s used to refer to the complex and cumulative way that the effects of different forms of discrimination (such as racism, sexism, and classism) combine, overlap, and yes, intersect—especially in the experiences of marginalized people or groups.

With the Government shutdown, the Food Pantry at Hope United Church of Christ where we meet is anticipating an increase of those in need.  Since they don’t charge us for the use of the Fellowship Hall for our meetings, we are asking that you bring a bag of items to donate for their Pantry.  What can you donate?  Think clean, hygiene, protein.  The Bridge cards do not allow the recipients to purchase paper towels, toilet tissue, garbage bags, laundry soap (clean); nor does it allow for toothpaste, razors, shampoo, soap (hygiene); and protein food items would be peanut butter, canned tuna/chicken/salmon, whole wheat pasta, trail mix snacks, pistachios, cashews, peanuts, almonds…thank you! :)

We hope you can join us for this celebration with the PFLAG family!
