About Abolish Slavery: Educating Communities on Prop 2

VIA Executive Director Debbie Ingram will present “Abolish Slavery: Educating Our Communities on Prop 2.  The purpose of this presentation is to explain the Vermont constitution’s current language regarding slavery and how it evolved; how this language has influenced the U.S. Constitution and many of our systems and practices; and the proposed amendment, which Vermont voters will have the chance to pass in November of 2022. Participants will also learn of opportunities to take action to ensure passage of the amendment, and to address the larger question of how to dismantle systemic racism in many forms.

About Poetry: Lost and Found

We will engage five poets, Sappho, Simonides (both classical Greek), John Newton (British, who wrote the song “Amazing Grace”), Yehuda Amichai (Israeli) and William Carlos Williams (American). The first three poems are very short; the Williams poem is several pages. We will read several Amichai poems, some short, some modest, none long. Poetry, death, loss, finding: all will be our focus. No knowledge of poetry is needed: These are all, all, accessible poems. They tell us a lot, and are enjoyable to read. Use this Zoom link to join.
