We had a booth at this event on October 23rd.

CCSJ SUPPORTS INDIGENOUS PEOPLE’S DAY

We support the proposal of the Morgantown Human Rights Commission (HRC) to rename October 12th as Indigenous People’s Day. The proposal was presented at the October 26th City Council Committee of the Whole meeting. According to the October 28th account of the meeting in the Dominion Post, Council members “agreed to seek more community input and work with the HRC before moving the measure to a meeting agenda.” Mike Attfield sent emails to council members supporting the proposal.

MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR., DAY 2022 theme is "respect"

We will hold this event via Zoom on January 17th at 2:00 p.m. in cooperation with the WVU Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) because of concerns about COVID-19. We have received an allocation of $1500 from the City of Morgantown to reimburse us for expenses.
