On May 11th, at 7:00, both in-person and virtually, Action Ridge will present three stories taken from the PBS documentary series, First-Hand. One of the stories was told by Nan Parson, co-founder of Action Ridge. In the video she talks about segregation and ways to mitigate it, using Park Ridge as an example of a segregated suburb.
After viewing the videos of the stories, participants will engage in discussion regarding their experiences with segregation and will explore the effects of it locally and in society at large.
Action Ridge Committee Chairs will also bring attendees up to date about the recent activities of the organization, including participating in a rally to fight against anti-Semitism that took place on April 24th. Please join us to explore the causes and effects of segregation and to learn more about Action Ridge. If you aren’t on the Action Ridge mailing list, and wish to attend virtually, request the Zoom link at firstname.lastname@example.org .
