Move along to here

Join us for a party with dazzling entertainment (Drag Show by Imperial Court of the Rocky Mountain Empire), beer, wine, and as much Sexy Pizza as you can eat!

One year to the day from the "Move along to Where?" forum at the Exdo Event Center in RiNo, Colorado Village Collaborative is co-hosting "Move along to Here," a fundraising party with the Alternative Solutions Advocacy Project. Come learn about tiny home villages as an innovative solution to the current housing shortage.

The true cost of this event per person is about $15. We are strongly encouraging anyone with discretionary income to purchase a ticket at the $25-$50 level to ensure that no one is turned away and to begin investing in the growing tiny home movement. Find the link to purchase tickets below!

In most societies there may be a dominant religion. Christianity has that leadership role in the United States and most western societies. It is easy for Christian privilege to become invisible, even to non-Christians, unless there is conflict with ideas and values people hold dearly. We have talked a lot about racial hierarchy in Second Tuesday Race Forum meetings, and this month we will apply that understanding and approach to the many dominant expressions of religion in our culture.

Closely related to this: our December meeting falls on the first night of Chanukah, an eight-day Jewish holiday which celebrates light in the face of religious persecution or darkness. It is known as "the festival of lights.” Many communities celebrate the holiday by coming together to light their menorahs, so everyone is welcome to bring a menorah, candles and a lighter if you choose, and we will light together at the beginning of the evening.

Sadly I did not post this announcement until after the meeting. I did post it now so folks visiting our site can see what the December meeting was about.
