Elizabeth Cady Stanton was a brilliant activist-intellectual.

The Somers Democratice Town Committee is hosting a meeting at the Somers Library on Oct. 18 for people who wish to learn more about the ballot proposal for a NYS Constitutional Convention and who wish to actively organize voters to oppose this initative. Opposition comes from both sides of the aisle, and includes environment groups, retirees, labor and women concerned about their healthcare rights.
Speakers will provide information about why so many New Yorkers oppose this effort.
We will then offer suggestions on how you can help organize and mobilize friends and families to vote using some simple steps.
Seating is limited, please preregister using the link.
How have you responded to racial prejudice and injustice? You’re invited to come and share your story at the monthly meeting of REPAIR. Your response may be a “small” one (such as a conversation with a friend) or a bigger one (such as promoting change in a community organization).
Whether you’re merely curious or already deeply committed to racial progress, please join us for a program of sharing, learning, and community-building! Snacks will be served.
We’ll be meeting at The Church of St. Barnabas, 15 N Broadway, Irvington, NY 10533.
