Transgender Day of Remberance

Join us for our annual observance of the Transgender Day of Remembrance. This year's event will be held at Holston Valley Unitarian Universalist Church on November 19th, 2017 at 6PM.

We will host various speakers and performers, then hold a candle lighting ceremony to hold space for our binary and non-binary transgender friends and family we have lost this year due to anti-transgender violence.

Please join us to honor the memory of those we have lost and to dedicate ourselves to putting a stop to these senseless tragedies in our communities.

Everyone is welcome to join us for community time afterward in the fellowship hall where we will have light refreshments.

In the Heart of the Other: A Muslim and a Jew Share Stories

In the Heart of the Other: A Muslim and a Jew Share Stories

Did you ever feel like you didn't fit in? Feel like the odd guy out? It just might be you were the new kid in town. Or, maybe like Arif Choudhury, you grew up in one of the few Bangledeshi-Muslim immigrant families in Chicago, the only "brown-skinned boy" in the neighborhood. 

Getting to know one another is sometimes harder than we think. And yet, sometimes, even in the most difficult of situations, it can be as simple as listening. Listening to someone else's story. As Noa Baum writes in her memoir The Land Twice Promised, An Israeli Woman's Quest for Peace, when listening to another's story “you have a glimpse into their world, a glimpse that is larger and deeper than you would ever have had in a meeting or even a social interaction.”

On stage together for the first time, professional storytellers Arif Choudhury and Noa Baum will share with each other, as well as local audiences, glimpses into their worlds in their live performance In the Heart of the Other, A Muslim and Jew Sharing Their Stories. Hosted by URI's Northeast Tennessee Cooperation Circle, and made possible by generous community support, performances are free for both students and the public.
