Election day is nearly here, and I hope you and your friends have been getting to the polls! To mark the last weeks of primary season, we're screening a new important documentary about voter suppression: Capturing the Flag, a film by Anne DeMare. Join us Wednesday, August 1 at 7pm in the Hooker Dunham Theatre at 132 Main St. Refreshments will be served!
The way I see it, good policy is built of three threads: what researchers can tell us (evidence-based practices), what people who implement policy can tell us (professional experience), and what communities can tell us (lived experience). I’ve built a career on listening, on making spaces for people to speak, and on finding strategies at the intersection of these three threads.
Emilie, her family, and campaign volunteers marched in the Brattleboro Goes Fourth parade, today. Some of our signs included "Work for Democracy" and "Everyone Help - Help Everyone."
