Change is in the Air

Autumn has always been my favorite season.  The turning of the color of leaves, the crisp cool air, the yelling of children at play, it is all magical.  

Autumn is also a time of change.  This year, change comes in the form of new work for the organization.  We will be holding an anti-racism soccer tournament in a few weeks, thanks to a grant from FARE.  Racism here is usually not expressed overtly but takes shape in more subtle forms and prejudices.  We hope to teach the children, while they are still young and impressionable, that racism is not to be tolerated.  We have also been looking for sponsors for our campaign to develop and foster a local ecological conservation movement.  We want to hold a series of seminars to teach children about their local environment and to emphasis the importance of preserving the environment.  We will reinforce this with different contests and competitions on the local Earth Day.

It looks like we might be very busy soon!
