April 6 Stammtisch with Guest Speaker Sarah van Gelder

Guest speaker Sarah van Gelder, “YES! Magazine co-founder and editor at large speaking at our Stammtisch.  Sarah drove 12,000 miles through the heartland of the United States, living in her tiny truck camper, interviewing people on Native American reservations, in rust belt cities, Appalachian towns, and southern communities. Her book, “The Revolution Where You Live: Stories from a 12,000 Mile Journey Through a New America” (Berrett Koehler, 2017), tells the stories of broken economies, devastated ecosystems, and communities shattered by racism, violence, and exclusion. But the focus of her book is on the extraordinary work of ordinary people who are transforming their communities, even in the places that seemed to have run out of hope.” Find details here.
