Bilingual Volunteers Needed
October 15, 2017, 1-4pm @ Episcopal Farmworker Ministry, 2989 Easy Street, Dunn, NC
Join the LGBTQ Center of Durham, the North Carolina Council of Churches, and Sampson County Community Partners for a community conversation about how we can work together to resist hate and oppression in all its forms. Now more than ever, local rural communities can come together in Sampson & Johnson counties and discuss how we can create sanctuaries for everyone, and ensure safety in our schools, public spaces, and our homes.
Together we will talk about our shared and personal histories, eat a meal and while working to create a shared future vision of what we want our communities to look like through art, music, movement, and activism.
Our hopes for the day are to:
-Connect local organizations, families and individuals living in rural Orange county to one another; learn what is happening in your communities and how you can get involved
-Share our stories, resources and ideas
-Create a vision around what creating sanctuaries in our communities can look like and how can we get there together.
-Food and Fellowship
-Engage in Art as Activism
-Have Fun Resisting Hate in Our State!
This event is free and family friendly! There will be locally catered food, childcare & children’s activities, and Spanish & ASL interpretation available.
