As Emily’s birthday is approaching her sister ,Laura, and I discussed what we could do to honor her.I was also in touch with Camp Menogyn, as we generally give scholarships to camp, but due to COVID-19 they had to cancel summer camp. Meghan Cosgrove,Executive Director, suggested supporting Camp Menogyn’s anti-racism work as a community. They have an ongoing panel and are hiring a consultant. I have been following their First word entries every morning that have clarity ,poignancy and grace.
I am sharing the one from today with the powerful story of Ruby.We are very proud to be supporting these efforts and partnering with Camp Menogyn to honor Emily. Camp Menogyn writes:”
“We’re listening to Ruby’s story and working to build a staff and camper community where everyone can have a role model to look up to.
We invite your support and feedback in this work.”
As Emily’s sister said: This feels like a really beautiful way to honor Emily. I have been thinking of her a lot and know that she would be at the forefront of anti-racism work. That feels so much like Emily.
