NEXT MEETING: February 12, 2022
It is with a sad heart that BNC reports the passing of our Executive Committee Member James Peterson. He was a powerful addition to our team, bringing historical perspective and insight to our work. We will greatly miss his strong, thoughtful, and always humble presence at our meetings, and we will try to keep his spirit alive as we continue to give a voice to our communities. The Post News Group published a nice remembrance.
