Our Community: An Antidote to Crisis - April 27, 7:00 pmBeing part of a community eases feelings of isolation, reduces stress and generally increases happiness. In this time of the COVID-19 crisis, our communities are even more important than usual. Here’s a way to come together in community despite the need for physical distance between us:

Join us for ESTHER’s virtual hope builder, “Our Community: An Antidote to Crisis,” on April 27, at 7 p.m. Hear local faith and spiritual leaders lift up the value of our connections to each other and highlight sources of hope as we navigate these difficult days. They will be joined by some of our great local musicians performing uplifting and encouraging songs. Together, we will celebrate community, share hope, and stand for justice in these challenging times.

There is no charge for the event. However, participation is limited because of the online platform.

Register online for your personal link to the gathering; it will be sent by email a day or two before the event.

A graduate of Harvard and Antioch Universities, she has devoted her life to protecting the lands and life-ways of Native communities. In 1994, Time magazine named her one of America’s fifty most promising leaders, and in 1997 LaDuke was named Ms. Magazine Woman of the Year. In 2007, LaDuke was inducted into the National Women’s Hall of Fame. She has authored many books, including All Our Relations, Recovering the Sacred, Food is Medicine and The Militarization of Indian Country.

The banquet will be preceded by a social hour and silent auction. The program will feature musical entertainment and presentation of ESTHER’s 2019 individual and community awards in addition to the keynote.
