COVID-19 has changed the events landscape on oh so many ways, but despite all the cancelled events and suspended face-to-face meetings, there’s actually an upside: thanks to Zoom and other videoconferencing platforms, some off-island events are accessible that wouldn’t have been otherwise.
Since the West Tisbury library is closed, the biweekly meetings We Stand Together / Estamos Todos Juntos (WST/ETJ) have been suspended. The Coordinating Committee, which consists of representatives from all four committees (Racial Justice and Human Dignity, Education, Environment, and Women’s Perspectives and Priorities), has been meeting weekly via Zoom, and an open Zoom meeting is being planned for Sunday, May 17, from 4 to 6 p.m. Details to come!
The Feminist Reading Group continues to meet virtually on the first Friday of every month.
Friday–Sunday, May 1–3
