Save the date to help Inaugurate Hope in the Rochester area!
In the midst of hate, I found there was, within me, an invincible love.
In the midst of tears, I found there was, within me, an invincible smile.
In the midst of chaos, I found there was, within me, an invincible calm.
I realized, through it all, that…In the midst of winter, I found there was, within me, an invincible summer.
And that makes me happy. For it says that no matter how hard the world pushes against me, within me, there’s something stronger – something better, pushing right back.
These times compel us to unleash a powerful, positive grassroots movement of hope right where we live. On the evening of Inauguration Day, January 20th, all of those who want to create positive change in our community and our world are invited to gather from 7:00 to 9:00 PM at the First Unitarian Church at 220 Winton Rd. South.
It is our plan to explore ways to embody contagious hope wherever we are. When we inspire, energize, support, and empower each other, we can create the world that needs to emerge, from the ground up. This event is presently co-sponsored by the Rochester Pachamama Alliance, the Social Justice Committee of the First Unitarian Church, the Rochester Peoples Climate Coalition, the Sisters of Mercy, Living in Harmony, and The Interfaith Alliance of Rochester (TIAR). [Also, now, Genesee Valley Citizens for Peace.]
We invite other organizations to join us in co-sponsoring and spreading the word about this “Inaugurating Hope” event! Donations are welcome but not required.
Co-sponsors will be listed in our Pachamama Rochester newsletter and the Announcement Flyer, and acknowledged at the event. We also invite you to promote “Inaugurating Hope” in any way possible including through newsletters, mailings, and electronic communication. Co-sponsoring organizations are also encouraged to bring to the event flyers or brochures that offer ways for people to help with their work.
