Colors of Gratitude Event
APRIL 18, 2021
1:00 PM to 3:00 PM

Colors of Gratitude Event -created by our friends at Kol Ami — The Northern Virginia Reconstructionist Community- and guided by the acclaimed illustrator Joanne Fink will be back on April 18, 2021.

After one year, the worldwide struggle against the coronavirus is ongoing. Many of the front line workers, care givers, and essential staff are still risking their lives to provide necessary services. You can let them know that you see them, appreciate their work and are thankful with your very own “Color of Gratitude” Card. Joanne Fink will be present to give tips and show tricks on how to make the card(s) your very own.

We are grateful that our Board member Debra Linick, past president of Kol Ami extended the invitation to all our former and future ARSP volunteers. Everyone - no matter the age or location- is welcome! See you @ April 18 from 1-3pm!

Remembering Magda

June 11, 1927 - July 7, 2020

We are deeply saddend by Magda Brown's passing. Her soul and spirit have been aligned with ARSP for decades. She has been a close mentor, friend, and companion to generations of young ARSP volunteers. Magda lived the message of reconciliation to the fullest and, thus, was one of our closest, finest and most trusted allies.

The theme of the years 2019 to 2021

Each two years, ARSP highlights a topic, which then attracts a variety of events, workshops, interviews, and presentations. For 2019-2021, the chosen topic is „ON THE BASIS OF SEX (AND GENDER).“
