On Friday, December 10th, we went to the Cory United Methodist Church (Cory UMC) on East 105th Street to attend the unveiling of the first historical marker on the Cleveland Civil Rights Trail, a collaborative project of the Cleveland Restoration Society (CRS) and the Ohio History Connection.
After we left the historical marker unveiling at Cory UMC, we raced over to the City Club of Cleveland to attend a forum that featured Mr. David Harris, CEO of the American Jewish Committee (AJC) whose mission is “to safeguard the welfare and security of Jews; to strengthen the basic principles of democracy and pluralism around the world; and to enhance the quality of Jewish life.”
We missed most of Global Cleveland’s 2021 virtual annual meeting that took place early Thursday morning on December 9th, but we want to extend our congratulations to all those who received citations on behalf of their work to help refugees/people who have immigrated to the United States as well as the entire Greater Cleveland/Northeast Ohio community.
On Friday, December 3rd, we went to Windows on the River, located in the Flats, where we attended the 16th Annual International Chambers of Commerce 2021 Christmas Luncheon.
December 1st is World AIDS day marking the 40th year since the AIDS/HIV pandemic started in the 1980’s.
Appropriately, the City Club of Cleveland conducted a virtual forum in which Ms. Marlene Harris-Taylor, Reporter/Producer for Ideastream Public Media, interviewed Dr. Celeste Watkins-Hayes, author of “Remaking a Life: How Women Living with HIV/AIDS Confront Inequality.”
On Monday evening, November 29th, we drove to the Jewish Federation of Cleveland on Science Park Drive in Beachwood to take part in a “Shine a Light” gathering that addressed the disturbing rise of antisemitism that is currently taking place.
