At our annual potluck, we watched a video We the People: The Market Basket Effect. We brought Market Basket foods.

Some of us went to the Million Womens Marches in Boston and DC. WOW!

We did not have a monthly business meeting.

On Jan 31, we hosted a panel presentation about the risks of nuclear war. At least 80 people listened to and questioned three speakers.
-Harvard professor Elaine Scarry updated facts, and noted that the presence of nuclear arms undermines constitutional rights.
-Washington Post writer, Dan Zac, highlighted the continuing history of resisting nuclear weapons, especially by the third speaker.
-Sister Megan Rice reminisced about her protests and incarceration, and introduced the idea of civil obedience: that the law that takes care of every one is what to obey.
