Free Zoom Event on Wednesday, January 19th, 7:30 pm – 9:15 pm. Zoom link is at www.repairrivertowns.org.

If you’re worried about the kind of planet we will be leaving our children and grandchildren — and whether it will enable ALL humans to enjoy healthy, productive lives — this meeting is one you won’t want to miss.

Join REPAIR on Zoom when a remarkable panel of experts and activists help us consider what Environmental Justice  means, what we must do, how we can support it in our own communities.

The panel will include:

Anjalie Sauthoff, environmental health scientist working in Westchester County government to create communication tools on the impacts of climate change here.

Paul Presendieu, outreach manager for Sustainable Westchester and global ambassador for the UN Foundation’s sustainable development goal on climate action.

Rev. Dr. Gregory Simpson, organic chemist and pastor, co-founder of Hudson Valley Environmental Justice.

All are welcome; no religious affiliation needed.​

In an increasingly diverse America, race continues to divide us because of unconscious bias, willful blindness, deeply ingrained systems of oppression, and the burdens of history we have yet to address. Rivertowns Episcopal Parishes Action on Inclusion and Race (REPAIR) is a community of Westchester citizens determined to play our part in bringing healing and justice to our society . . . starting with the local Episcopal churches in which many of us worship.

Please visit us on Facebook at REPAIR Rivertowns and at www.repairrivertowns.org.
