This is a very important meeting. Board members are elected, budgets are set as well as priorities for the organization. All are welcome!

Due to an unforeseen family emergency, Dr. Darnisa Amante will be unable to join us.

Instead, our after lunch guest will be: Brenda Bailey Lett of the NH Black Women Health Project and co-author of "Race Between Us", that tells the story of the profound and inescapable truths that emerge when barriers are removed and honest dialogue happens.

Brenda Bailey Lett was born in Chicago IL. She has a Masters in Community Mental Health and Community Economic Development from Southern NH University and Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from University of Dubuque. She is National Secretary of the National Coalition Of Blacks for Reparations in America (N’COBRA), Board Chair of NH Black Women Health Project, Board Member of the Greater Manchester Black Scholarship Foundation and Former President, NAACP Manchester Branch.  Brenda is a community activist and justice advocate.

Brenda Bailey Lett will lead a discussion centered on the three evils - the evil of racism, the evil of poverty, and the evil of war - spoken of by Martin Luther King, Jr. in 1967. What did he mean then, and how are these evils manifesting today? Further, how we can look beyond the walls that separate our peace and social justice work towards a unified Beloved Community? How might these issues inform NH Peace Action's work as we move forward in planning for our future work?

This will be a potluck luncheon, business meeting and networking event.
