A year has passed since George Floyd’s murder spurred our nation into a great reckoning. Matters of racial justice, diversity, equity and inclusion rose to the forefront of discussion in churches, corporations, schools, and municipalities across the country. Suffield wasn’t an exception.
We were so excited to see so many friends – old and new! – at Suffield Garden Club’s May Market. Thanks to everyone who came by to contribute to our gratitude tree, paint kindness rocks, share your stories and learn more about us.
As we look forward to warmer weather, longer days, and the safety and promise of COVID-19 vaccinations, ABAR (anti-bias, anti-racist) Suffield members have been busy reorganizing for the future and preparing for some exciting spring and summer events.
On October 10, ABAR (Anti-Bias, Anti-Racist) Suffield hosted, “Lift Every Voice: A Celebration of Diversity for Children and Families.” Nearly one hundred fifty people gathered to hear speakers and performers address identity, diversity, racism, and bias.
