It’s the monthly meetup for the Morrow chapter of Recovering from Religion! We will meet to discuss issues directly related to religious indoctrination, struggles faced, and how to better overcome them.
There is no proselytizing of any kind allowed at these meetings. While BN Inc, is a proud partner and facilitator, by no means is this a tool for recruitment. Any donations incurred as a result of these meetings will go directly toward RR efforts. Also, be sure to join the Meetup group for this chapter.
Thanks so much, and we look forward to seeing you!!!

“Conversation With A Civil Rights Legend”
We are proud to welcome Annie Pearl Avery as our guest speaker for our October General Meeting. Born in Birmingham, AL in 1943, Mrs. Avery’s roots in the Civil Rights Movement began as a member of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC). She was one of the first to be arrested in the 1965 attempt to march from Selma to Montgomery, now notoriously known as “Bloody Sunday”. Mrs. Avery was honored at the 2015 50th anniversary of this tragic event, and will be inducted in the Smithsonian Museum in September 2016.
Known as a Civil Rights foot soldier who has lived in Selma, AL for decades now, Mrs. Avery will share her life experiences, accounts of events during that time, as well as her thoughts on the current state of our communities. Having met her this summer and hearing her for myself, it was important to have her speak with us, and you will see why. You can read more about Mrs. Avery here: http://onevotesncc.org/profile/annie-pearl-avery/
Donations at the door will be greatly appreciated to cover Mr. Avery’s appearance, however no one will be turned away for lack of funds. We will have refreshments available, as well as merchandise for sale.
Please join us for what is sure to be a very riveting and informative meeting!
