our new events.

COVID-19 has disproportionately affected Black people and the Latinx community, both of whom have experienced higher rates of illness and death than white Americans.  Decades of history of a racist caste system have led to current inequities in housing, healthcare and employment for these communities. Many don't have the luxury of working from home, if they are working at all.  Watch the video to learn more about this issue in our own community.From this need, The Coalition for Community was born which encompasses the work of CURE, Community Resource Center, First Methodist Church, Larchmont Avenue Church, Larchmont Friends of the Family, Larchmont Mamaroneck Hunger Task Force, Larchmont Temple, Mamaroneck-Larchmont PTA Council, STEM Alliance of Larchmont-Mamaroneck, St. Augustine’s Catholic Church, St John’s Episcopal Church,  St. John’s Lutheran, St Thomas Episcopal Church, Washingtonville Housing Alliance, the Village of Mamaroneck, the Town of Mamaroneck and the Village of Larchmont.

An ACTIVE way to create Equity right here in Mamaroneck & Larchmont!

Five Towns: One Book – April/May 2021

CURE, in partnership with the five libraries of Harrison, Larchmont, Mamaroneck, New Rochelle and Rye, funded by The Westchester BOL, and inspired by Catherine Parker, engaged almost one thousand members of Westchester County through six events around Isabel Wilkerson's book, CASTE. Ms. Wilkerson joined us via zoom on April 25th and her generous and inspiring presentation, moderated by Rev. Dierdra Gray Clark, kept us all wanting to learn more about the invented social constructs that divide Americans and keep us stuck in a human hierarchy that values some lives over others.

Contemplating 400 Years of Inequality with Dr. Angel Acosta – July 2020

Dr.Angel Acosta guides us in an exploration of a graphic timeline documenting the complex history of the US. The timeline focuses on events related to issues of race, class, gender, sexuality and immigration from the time that enslaved Africans first were brought here in 1619 to the present.

 

The experience combines deep learning, breath work, community building and mindfulness. It is powerful whether you are new to this history, or familiar and wanting to take a deeper dive. In addition to viewing
the timeline, participants journal and engage in small-group and whole-group discussion of their learning and reactions.
