On Tuesday, April 25, at 5 p.m., join us for the OPAL annual meeting at Oddfellows Hall. We’ll hold a brief business meeting; certify OPAL’s newest trustee, Pegi Groundwater; then watch the short film Arc of Justice before enjoying a potluck meal together.
Remember to bring a plate, bowl and silverware. Last names A to H bring something warm (entree, soup, etc.); I to S bring something cool (salad, fruit plate, cheese, etc.) and T to Z bring a sweet treat. Each dish should serve 8 to 10 people.
Arc of Justice is a 22-minute documentary about New Communities, Inc. It is set in southwest Georgia and provides a different perspective on the CLT movement. Follow this link to view a brief trailer with introductions by John Lewis and Shirley Sherrod.
The film is being provided by the national CLT organization, Grounded Solutions Network. It is hosted by the OPAL homeowners who are participating in the ambassador initiative, Eros Belliveau, Rusty Diggs and Carla Stanley.
The ambassador initiative selects residents of CLTs and other inclusionary housing programs to develop their leadership and advocacy skills. They meet quarterly, in person or by webinars, in order to advance national policies on affordable housing.
