As you all know, America has elected a new President. For man of us in the disability rights community and other communities of race, ethnicity, gender and sexual preferences, this is a traumatic experience. Across the country, many are gathering to support and grieve together.
This Saturday, the focus of our Thanksgiving meal will be on the support to each other that we all need at this time of immense challenge. The theme “Gobble for Unity” is still the same, but now is even more important.
We have many RSVPs so far and a delicious meal planned. Please, if you have not yet, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm that you are coming, if you are bringing any foods, and also if you need a ride from Metra station.
We also will need more SSP volunteers. We have many now but we anticipate needing more due to this news. If anyone wishes to be an SSP and join us in our community support and process, please do contact email@example.com.
