    February 18, 2020, 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM @ Kellogg-Hubbard Library

    Collectively Processing the Climate Emergency—Engaging Despair and Empowerment We are in the midst of a complex ecological crisis that provokes a wide range of reactions. Facilitators Mindy Blank and Jeff Scannell will guide aspects of "Extinction Cafe"—a space dedicated to sharing emotions that arise in the face of the climate emergency and for welcoming the collective grief—as an important way to build support and move forward from a deeper place of connection, acknowledgement, and empowerment. This is a space open to all that may emerge as we process together—whether that's tears, laughter, numbness, anger, silence, hope, or anything in between. Please note the library will be open for this event only. No other library services will be available.
