Dear Greylock Together,
Just a few quick notes — full newsletter next week.
Berkshire Mutual Aid. Berkshire Mutual Aid has been doing amazing work since the start of the pandemic, scrambling and bartering to get people the help they need. Julie Berger and the rest of the group were the tip of the spear recently when the governor announced that caretakers for the elderly would also be eligible for vaccines. It was immediately obvious that this would be exploited by the unscrupulous, and this article in the Eagle discusses the work BMA has done to fight that exploitation. Check it out.
Navigating Difficult Conversations. ROOTS Teen Center is holding a special workshop by ZOOM on February 17th, Navigating Difficult Conversations, led by Michael Obasohan, ROOTS board member and Associate Director of Readiness and Success at MCLA.
Do you find it hard to have conversations with friends and family on difficult topics such as race, religion, sexuality, and identity? Don’t know where to start? Attend this engaging session with a trained facilitator and gain the skills and confidence to navigate these types of conversations.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for details and registration.
Raskin. If you appreciated the brilliant leadership and rhetoric of impeachment manager Rep. Raskin last week, then you can show your appreciation with a donation to the foundation he started to honor the memory of his son, the Tommy Raskin Memorial Fund for People and Animals.
Resist and persist!
