STEERING COMMITTEE MEETING

UPDATED LIBRARY BOOK LISTS
For several years, the City of Morgantown provided funds for us to purchase library books focused on social justice issues for the Morgantown Public Library on Spruce Street. With funds from the Appalachian Community Foundation, we also purchased books for the Clinton District and Clay-Battelle Branch Libraries. Most of these are books for children. The library has added some of these at the Arnettsville branch.
The lists for have been updated and are available now here. The library is now open enough that people can order books and pick them up curbside. For more information on this procedure, please go here.

MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR. DAY 2021
The City of Morgantown has granted our request for $1850 to support this event, but it is subject to potential reduction depending on the City’s financial situation because of the COVID-19 pandemic. We are discussing what kind of celebration we can have, including the possibility of a virtual event. Meanwhile mark your calendars for Monday, January 18th at 2:00 p.m. for our fifteenth annual celebration and let us know if you have ideas.

CCSJ SUPPORTS NAACP EFFORTS
The Morgantown/Kingwood Branch of the NAACP sent a letter to Morgantown Police Chief Ed Preston, seeking to work together to address issues that have arisen across the country from the death of George Floyd and others. NAACP President Jerry Carr, Jr., asked us to be among those who signed on to the letter, and our co-chairs, Susan Brown and Sandra Nelms, did add their names on our behalf. Dr. Carr participated in our June meeting, and we look forward to future collaborations on this effort.
