Groups Campaigning for Social Justice Meet This in Old Saybrook, Sunday

The Lyme-Old Lyme Partnership for Social Justice and the Old Saybrook March for Justice have moved their weekly events to Sundays.

AREAWIDE — The Lyme-Old Lyme (LOL) Partnership for Social Justice and the Old Saybrook March for Justice have moved their weekly events from Wednesday evenings to Sundays at 4 p.m. The next gathering will be this afternoon, Sunday, Nov. 22, and take place in Deep River, in front of the Congregational Church at 1 Church St.

A representative from HOPE will discuss the work of the HOPE Partnership to advance affordable housing.

The change is to allow the events to take place when it is light and also reflect a more convenient time for working families, youth and elderly activists.

All are welcome. It is requested that everyone should wear a mask at the event.

Upcoming events sponsored by the LOL Partnership or the Old Saybrook March for Justice will take place as follows:
• Sunday, Nov. 29 – Old Saybrook, in front of the Kate.
• Sunday, Dec. 2 – TBD

The LOL Partnership’s mission is to educate area residents on important topics of social justice and call attention to opportunities where citizens can support local, state and national social-justice efforts.
