Poughkeepsie ENJAN change of Dec meetings

Poughkeepsie ENJAN,

Due to the holidays (both Thanksgiving and the winter holidays), ENJAN Poughkeepsie will need to follow a modified schedule for the rest of the year, instead of our normal second and fourth Wednesday of the month. The new schedule is as follows:

Wednesday, December 2nd (ie, next week)
Wednesday, December 18th
Wednesday, December 30th 

In January, we will resume our normal schedule.

All of the meetings will be in our normal location in the Sadie Peterson Delaney African Roots Library, at our usual time of 6 pm.

My apologies for those of you who got this email twice. Since I wanted to make sure everyone knew, I have sent it to both the planning-only Poughkeepsie-specific list and the larger, general discussion list. Some of you are subscribed to both.

Happy Holidays.

ENJAN - Poughkeepsie

"Jeff has just informed me that the entire Partnership Center building is closed today because of Veterans' Day, so we cannot meet. Our next meeting would normally be two weeks from now, the 25th, but that's the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, also a difficult day to have a meeting.

So let's have our next meeting the 18th, a week from today. Today's meeting is cancelled, and we'll probably end up cancelling the one on the 25th as well.

See you next week! We'll have some exciting agenda items, including discussion of the election results and the possibility of getting a grant to bring out an activist theater group working to stop mass incarceration."


Monday, Nov. 23, ROSENDALE: The End The New Jim Crow Action Network (ENJAN) will meet 6-8 p.m.  at the Rosendale Cafe. The meetings in December we will resume at New Pro in Kingston. ENJAN is a Hudson Valley network dedicated to fighting racist policies of racial profiling, police brutality, and mass incarceration. Information, (845) 475-8781 or
