Dear GVCP member,
GVCP is proud to co-sponsor this event. As you can see below, many other peace, justice, and environmental groups in the Rochester area are also co-sponsoring. Almost all of us will be discouraged on Inauguration Day. I think it’s better to come together rather than to stay home and nurse our dark thoughts. Sue Staropoli, the organizer, asks us to register in advance. The link for that is www.pachamama.org/workshop/3401/Inaugurating

On the evening of Inauguration Day, all those who want to create positive change in our community and our world are invited to come together as one. We will take steps to move towards the openness of heart, aliveness of body and clarity of purpose we need to generate positive, creative responses to the world’s situation. We will begin to release what most distresses us, as we listen to one another and connect to our deepest values and wisdom. On this night of profound change in our world, we can shift from powerlessness and anxiety into hope-filled action. We can find our role in collectively being the change the world needs.
The event is free, but please register at www.pachamama.org/workshop/3401/Inaugurating to assure that there is seating for everyone. Nominal donations will be gratefully accepted to help defray costs.
