Hello European Dissent community!

Please join us for our (holiday-delayed) November Community meeting on Saturday December 2nd!  We will be screening and discussing the film Anne Braden: Southern Patriot.  This documentary explores the extraordinary life and legacy of the white American civil rights leader Anne Braden.  After she was charged with sedition for attempting to desegregate a Louisville, Kentucky neighborhood in 1954, Braden used the attacks to turn herself “inside out” and embrace a lifetime of racial justice organizing matched by few whites in American history.

Please join us for a screening and discussion from 3-5:30 pm on December 2nd, at Seattle First Baptist Church (1111 Harvard Ave).  We will also have a separate kid-focused activity available for those interested interested.
