Racial Reconciliation Reading Group: No Innocent Bystanders

Join the Racial Reconciliation Reading group as we begin discussion of a new book on Thursday, January 11 at 7pm! We will be reading the Forward and Introduction to No Innocent Bystanders: Becoming an Ally in the Struggle for Justice by Shannon Craigo-Snell and Christopher Doucot. Our gatherings are at Andre Place (54515 Indiana 933, Notre Dame, IN 46556) Please feel free to invite friends who might be interested in this discussion.

For newcomers: because Andre Place is the community center at Holy Cross Village, you will be driving into a retirement community. Fear not—you are in the right place! We usually meet in the chapel, but meetings in Feb. (Feb 8 and 22) will be in Margaret Kenney’s apartment. Enter Andre Place and turn right as usual, but when you come to our usual meeting place  (the Meditation Room)  just keep going to the end of the hall. You will see an elevator and a table with a jigsaw puzzle. Apartment 121 is the first one past the elevator. They lock the front doors at 7pm, so we will leave someone there for the first 5 minutes to let you in. If you arrive later, please call Terri Bays at 574-850-5722 to come let you in!
