with Leader Dr. Joe Chuman

Most of us as New Yorkers would consider ourselves cosmopolitans. We are people of the world. We value education and the curious mind, and we proclaim a love and comfort with diversity. But the cosmopolitan spirit has historically had its opposition, which has risen to high places in the moment, and that is the celebration of nationalism. The world, of course, is divided into nation states, and our socialization within our respective nations, is a mainstay of our personal identities.
 
Nationalist identity is on a spectrum, from those who strive to reject it and prefer to see themselves as internationalists and cosmopolitans, to patriots, to those who embrace extreme forms of nationalism, fascism being the most dangerous. And, as the twentieth century has painfully shown, nationalistic zeal can open the door to tyranny. We need see history not as destiny, but as a warning.
 
My talk will look at the lessons of history and how we need to respond in the preservation of freedom and democracy.

APRIL is a month of BRAIN STORMS!  

We'll study CLIMATE and use it's metaphoric insights for our own private climates, learning about the world of excitable FEELINGS.

We'll learn and play with choices of self-expression, creative storm processes, and coping strategies for "the big feelings."  

We’ll use our expressive and creative forces to tackle the challenging extremes of weather within and without!  

APRIL will be a month of Action and Art. Children will be supported in their family's activist processes. 

1:00pm  TEEN TABLE, in lunch room.
