Volunteer to be a camp counselor for Camp Weekaneatit July 11 - 17, 2020 at Camp Twin Lakes in Winder, GA.

Please see our video on our website that tells part of the story: www.GlutenFreeCamp.org Interested people will participate in an online interview, background check screening and onsite camp staff training. PLEASE EMAIL TO SET UP YOUR INTERVIEW: [masked]
For Virtual Documentary Night we are meeting to talk about the documentary, Free Angela And All Political Prisoners. It is available for free on this link. https://tubitv.com/movies/472114/free_angela_and_all_political_prisoners The documentary tells the story of professor Angela Davis, whose social activism implicated her in a botched kidnapping and put her on the FBI’s Most Wanted List in 1970. You must watch the film on your own BEFORE the event. We will be meeting over Zoom, where we will break out into small discussion groups. We will do multiple rounds of small group discussion, then close out the night with larger group discussion. I will send out the Zoom link to those listed as attending the day of the event. Please make sure and message me before the start of the event if you have not received the link. It should go to your email if you are RSVPed by the time I send it out to everyone. This event is hosted in collaboration with multiple meetup groups, including the 20s & 30s ATL Meetup, Atlanta Volunteer Meetup, the Ethical Humanists of Atlanta, Sunday Assembly Atlanta, and the Vegan Social Club. Therefore those in attendance will be from varying backgrounds and beliefs. This is in order to provide an opportunity to hear a wide range of perspectives. This event is open to all who are open to all. The one thing we ask is that people allow others to get their full thought out and that any disagreement is voiced in a civil way. Thank you and hope to see you there!
