Lyme-Old Lyme Partnership for Social Justice Holds Teach-in Tonight

LYME/OLD LYME – The Lyme-Old Lyme Partnership for Social Justice has announced that, as part of its efforts to work for racial justice, it would hold a “teach-in” focused on desegregating our spaces, hearts and minds on Wednesday, Oct. 14, at 5:30 p.m., in Lyme – at the Lyme town green between Town Hall and the Lyme Public Library (480 Hamburg Road).

The teach-in will feature three speakers who will help participants imagine what it means to desegregate not only spaces, but minds and hearts, in order to build institutional affiliations and bridges of friendship between Lyme, Old Lyme and New London:
• Finn Darby-Hudgens from CT Fair Housing will address desegregating spaces, sharing what she has learned about exclusionary zoning practices in towns like Lyme and Old Lyme, and the housing needs in New London.
• Kevin Booker from the New London City Council – a teacher, entrepreneur and social justice advocate – will address the work involved in desegregating minds.
• Tariko Satterfield, Sr., from ReaLifEmpire in New London will address what it means to desegregate hearts.
The partnership’s mission is to educate residents on important topics of social justice and call attention to opportunities where citizens can support local, state and national social-justice efforts.
