H.O.P.E Storytelling Lunch

September 26, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

12 Noon Sunday, Sept. 26

The Community Hall

FREE & Open to Public

How are you, a loved one, or someone you know being impacted by one of these community problems – the lack of quality affordable housing; an arrest as an adult for a minor offense; negative law enforcement interactions/racial profiling; or mental health and addiction?

Over the past several years H.O.P.E. has worked on these four (4) issues; and saw this past year only exposed the problems even more, challenging us to go even deeper.

How have you, your family, someone you know been impacted by flooding, heat, mold, utility bills, hunger, pollution, effects of storms, or something else related to the environment?

You may have been impacted by many of these areas – during these sessions we ask you to please think about and share your most compelling story.

Storytelling can be a powerful tool in building bridges to our lived experiences.  When done in a community of love, stories in our hearts can be shared without fear.

These stories will teach us to:
1. Be better advocates for various social justice issues.
2. Be better allies to the communities affected by these issues.
3. Care for Creation.

The event is FREE and open to the public. RSVPs are required.
