My name is Alex Lehning, I am the graduate assistant for UVM Hillel. I
am working with our undergraduate interns to organize a Freedom Seder
on April 17, from 7-9pm in the Levak Ballroom.
I am writing to you to invite ACCESS Services to participate in or
collaborate with our seder/multicultural dinner.
A Freedom Seder is an event where people come together to discuss and
learn about different ways of overcoming oppression and promoting
diversity (a traditional Passover Seder is a meal where the story
about the Jewish People?s escape from slavery in ancient Egypt to
freedom is remembered).
We would like to invite your group to submit a poem, short story,
personal narrative, or song that speaks to the themes of oppression,
redemption, and/or freedom. Most of these materials will be complied
into a guide that will be used at the Freedom Seder. We also invite you
to prepare a dish/es for all to enjoy "pot-luck style" at the dinner
following the Seder.
We are committed to hosting this event free of charge, so that all can
attend. If your organization is able to contribute funds towards making
this Freedom Seder a reality, that would be greatly appreciated. Also
feel free to share or forward this information to anyone you feel would
be interested in participating in this event.
Thank you, and we hope to see you on April 17! If you have any
questions, please feel free to contact me [log in to unmask]
