Hello Friend,

There are a couple of important in person events happening this week, and many places you can continue to do good work in the world safe at home, through your computer.

As the COVID numbers start to rise again in our state, please be careful, wear your masks, wash your hands and be weary of those who chose not to take precautions. Everyone of you is important and irreplaceable.

As always, check in with links before leaving for events, they sometimes are cancelled or postponed due to unpredictable circumstances.

Thanks to all those who responded to the request to call for Gregory last week, I told him about the outpouring of love. He really appreciates your help, for himself and all those who were arrested in the last few weeks.

On the side with love,
