ADL: Show America Who Refugees Really Are

The Peace and Justice Center of Sonoma County

Note - The gathering for March 28, 2019 is cancelled and has been rescheduled for July. At least one person is interested in meeting in July in addition to me, anyone else? At 5:30 we will meet outside the PJC and cover the topics at ### below. At 6:30 a number of us will be having a brief Climate DRAWDOWN focused discussion and then at 7 pm we will go inside the PJC for the quarterly Sonoma County Climate Action Network (Sonoma CAN) meeting. You are very welcome to join us too. WE PROBABLY WILL NOT HAVE ANOTHER MEETING FOR 3 or 6 months after that, but if you want to continue working on this issue we can message each other and work via email or something until we resume. (I could use some help figuring how to edit the meeting calendar to only be every 3 or 6 months. Just the 5th Monday of the months 6, 9, 12, 3. Zoom phone and video conferencing connecting may be possible also. Please bring your own water bottle or beverage if you want. ### The White House and those in Washington need to know that refugees are real people who simply seek a better life — and for centuries, refugees and immigrants have built our nation. Let’s join together in our community in opposition to the ongoing atmosphere coming from the current White House. Share the stories of refugees you know and the many positive ways they contribute to our country. We want to show the president, Congress, and the public what it means when we say #ThisIsARefugee. At this meetup, we will ask participants to share a refugee story — whether it’s their personal story, a family member’s, friend’s or neighbor’s story. Here’s how: 1. Write the stories of refugees in your community on paper as a group. 2. Take a picture of your group and the text of your letter and post to social media using the hashtag #ThisIsARefugee. 3. Send a copy of your letters with a personal note to your members of Congress urging them to oppose the President’s un-American executive orders. 4. Use Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to post a short video or a written description about a refugee that touched your life using the hashtag #ThisIsARefugee. 5. Get together and brainstorm other actions to help refugees in your community. Don’t sit there! FIGHT BACK and remind the President that “we are all refugees.” We will also be doing coalition building and more!

Resist AND Coalition Building AND Climate - LET'S CHANGE EVERYTHING!

July meeting and only every 3 months thereafter (until there are many volunteer organizers with time to guide meetings more often): Please note some of us will be gathering at 6:30 PM in front of the PJC, and to the west a bit, to discuss topics you message me about beforehand and climate and DRAWDOWN focused especially in Santa Rosa and Sebastopol. Anyone is welcome to join us. From 7 pm onward inside the PJC, the quarterly meeting of the Sonoma County Climate Action Network, (Sonoma CAN) will be all climate focused. The CAN meeting will probably go to 9 pm, but if you need to leave early that is fine of course. Thanks Tons! Roni
