    The monarch butterfly population has declined by 90% over the past two decades, and the species is currently being reviewed for federal protection under the Endangered Species Act. Key threats to the species include loss of overwintering habitat in Mexico, loss of breeding habitat in the US and Canada, climate change, and disease. New Hampshire is one of many states across the species range to include the Monarch in their state wildlife action plan as a species of greatest conservation need. Monarchs represent one of the largest conservation efforts ever for a single species and there are many ways for individuals, communities, and conservation organizations to get involved. This workshop will explore monarch ecology and life cycles, information on conservation actions for monarchs and other pollinators, and an introduction to citizen science programs to help monitor the species.

TRACES of the TRADE Film Screening & Discussion

  • Tue, Sept 15: 9am-noon & 5-8pm
  • Fri, Sept 18: 9am-noon & 5-8pm

Co-sponsored by Jackson Public Library and Jackson Community Church. RSVP to JCC if interested in participating. This New England-based documentary screened at the Sundance Film Festival and has been featured on PBS Point of View. It traces a journey by several cousins into the dark past of the slave trade which enriched their white New England family. Dain Perry, one of the nine cousins, and his wife, Constance, screen the film and facilitate a conversation on race, reconciliation and healing. Traces of the Trade is both a geographical and psychological retracing of the industry of the largest slave traders in American history, the DeWolf family of Bristol, Rhode Island, and an exploration into racism in America, a legacy of slavery that continues to negatively impact the country even today. A primary debunked myth is that the North was the center of the abolition movement and had little to do with slavery. The fact is that the North was the center of the US slave trade, and the ownership of slaves in the north was not only common., but it lasted for over two hundred years. Join us for a film and conversation facilitated by the family members who participated in making the documentary.

This will be a casual, socially distanced, outdoor service, in order to accommodate all those who would like to attend.  We would like an RSVP and also ask that everyone be considerate and please wear a mask.” They write: “About Judy… Judy was born on April 2, 1936 to Roger A. and Isabel M. Griffin, in Boston, MA. She was the first born of the 6 Griffin children, who’s births spanned 18 years. Being the oldest, Judy was relied upon to help care for her younger siblings, and as the only girl in the first 4, she quickly learned be very resourceful. Her Life… After graduating from college, she met and married the love of her life, in a ski club in Glen, NH. Together, Judy and Carl raised a family that she was most proud of, ran a successful small retail business, and she generously gave her time and energy to many organizations including Cranmore Mountain, the garden club, and the Meister Cup Race. Upon retiring to NH full time, Judy enjoyed their social life, playing golf with the ladies, and skiing with “the gang”. Together, Carl and Judy traveled all over the US and the World to visit with their many friends and family.  They enjoyed life on their many trips to fish at Jones Pond, and the chores of daily retirement life, like making homemade maple syrup. Judy will be dearly missed by her family, close friends, and the many people that came to know her.”

UPCOMING WORKSHOPS by CROSSROADS ANTI-RACISM ORGANIZING & TRAINING GROUP

Please note when registering that some workshops are in Pacific time and others are in Central time.   Introduction to Systemic Racism WorkshopWednesday, October 14th, from 9am to 5pm Central Time The idea that oppression, and in particular, racism, is not only a matter of individual prejudice but a systemic, institutional problem of power is foundational to the Introduction to Systemic Racism workshop, and requires structural intervention to dismantle. Conducted in an atmosphere of mutual respect and courageous space, this workshop is designed to explore racism as a systemic, institutional problem of power that goes beyond personal prejudice. Participants will experience first-hand Crossroad’s effective methodology for facilitating productive conversations about race. They will also be be introduced to a strategic methodology that can assist people in effectively organizing to dismantle racism in their institutions.   Critical Cultural Competency WorkshopSaturday October 17th, from 9am to 5pm Pacific Time​Saturday, November 14th, from 9am to 5pm Central Time This workshop is designed to help participants create the spaces to be self-reflective about our cultural shaping as individuals and institutions, understand the power dynamics in society that impact us, develop the skills to interrupt old patterns and inequitable practices that limit access and exclude some people from our institutions, build trust and clear communication and begin to understand how to make decisions based on multiple perspectives where all people can be heard and represented.   Introduction to Antbias Antiracist (ABAR) Workshop Wednesday, October 28th, 2020, from 9am to 5pm Pacific  The idea that oppression, and in particular, racism, is not only a matter of individual prejudice but a systemic, institutional problem of power is foundational to the Introduction to ABAR Education workshop and requires structural intervention to dismantle. Especially for educators, ABAR Education workshop is designed for educational institutions who want their staff as well as their leadership to understand the systemic nature of racism and the role institutions play in its maintenance. Participants will gain insight into how children and adults internalize and act out of these biases. The 4 Goals of Anti-bias Anti-racist Education will be introduced, and participants will consider ways to apply them to educational settings.    All of these workshops are open to all interested persons, especially leaders in organizations or congregations who work on social justice initiatives, programs that serve refugees, unstably housed individuals, or anyone on the margins of our community.     These workshops will all take place on Zoom, preferably with a desktop computer or laptop. Using a phone or tablet to join this workshop with limit your ability to participate.    The changing landscape for our communities and institutions provides a unique opportunity to think deeply about how to provide more welcoming, accessible, and effective programming. In light of that, we are pleased to announce that we will be offering a sliding scale for these workshops to increase access and equity in the space. Please pay what you can and consider donating to sponsor another’s registration if you are able.  

These workshops are fee-based with a sliding scale: https://www.tickettailor.com/events/crossroadsantiracismorganizingtraining/401548/
