Event description

Description

The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said the Beloved Community was a "realistic, achievable goal that could be attained by a critical mass of people committed to and trained in the philosophy and methods of nonviolence." The Beloved Community was Dr. King's vision for an inclusive and reconciled community. We gather as a community from many different places and over a shared meal to explore the many ways the Beloved Community can be brought into reality in Westchester County.

On November 27, we will focus on the theme: "The Boundary Between Free Speech and Hate Speech." Free Speech is a protected civil right through our Constitution. Yet, there are limits to our freedom of speech, particularly when our rights to free speech infringe upon another person's civil rights. Where does free speech end and hate speech begin? How do we identify these boundaries and what can WE do if are in a situation where we see these rights infringed? Let's talk!
