Brown Bag Lunch Series: JUMP START THE PEACEFUL REVOLUTION FOR DEMOCRACY

25 July, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

JUMP START THE PEACEFUL REVOLUTION FOR DEMOCRACY
Things you can do for a new day of Democracy and Civil Rights

Woody Bernhard, host of the Brattleboro Democracy Forum, and organizer of the We Celebrate Democracy / Civil Rights For All main street banner, will share his ideas about what we can do ourselves, right now, to begin the peaceful revolution and get on track to a democracy which respects and includes all people.

Listen to Woody’s  inspirational  “Carpenters Song” about the virtues of the mythic christian hero known as Jesus Christ. Learn  a “prayer of change”,  a short sequence of movements embodying the desire for change. Talk about ways that we can change ourselves in order to change our culture of disagreement, discord and dysfunction into a culture we need: A culture of helping each other.
Talking  points will include conformity, egotism and self promotion, competitiveness, competitive sports, individualism, nationalism, isolationism, and our tendency to see people who disagree with us as enemies, etc….
Presenter: Woody Bernhard is a retired carpenter. He was born in Lebanon, New Hampshire. He has been a resident of Marlboro for 40 years.  He is a former chairman of the Windham Regional Commission, former Chairman of the Marlboro Selectboard and former member of the Marlboro Planning Commission.
