Not in Our Town


When we moved to Princeton in 1981, I was lucky enough to have cousins already living here. One was my first cousin on my father’s side. On my mother’s side is Ann Harris Yasuhara, and if you go by the rules, she is my first cousin once removed. We feel lucky to be so geographically close, and so as soon as I was able (when I no longer worked full time at U.S. 1) I began to meet with one of the organizations she supports, a faith congregation-based group called Not in Our Town. Click on the links to see the mission statement, and here is the list of what individuals and groups can do to fight racism.

Not in Our Town, along with Princeton Public Library, will present a workshop “Engaging in an Exploration of White Privilege” on Monday nights, starting April 13 at 7:30 p.m. Among the presenters is Ann Yasuhara, pictured, and she hopes to make this “an inviting, friendly, and engaging experience.” Perhaps you’ll join us . . .
