OUR NEXT BOOK DISCUSSION
Monday, May 17th at 5:00 p.m.
 
 
The Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Committee will hold its next book discussion on Monday, May 17th, at 5:00 p.m. They will discuss Chapter 6 (Body) of Ibram Kendi's book How to Be an Antiractist.
 
EMRC is part of the community-based discussion around Racial Equity and Justice hosted by the Edina Community Foundation. On behalf of our club, Mary Brindle is participating in community conversations led by the foundation.
 
The EMRC Diversity, Equity & Inclusion committee will present a series discussions, sharing fellowship and learning about the challenges we encounter when learning about race equity and justice. We will use a variety of resources (books, Ted Talks, other discussions) to help deepen our understanding of the concept of unconscious bias and how it plays a role in the context of our society. The topic of racial inequity and injustice is a difficult topic of discussion. We will also use a book discussion format to focus our conversations and our learning. 
 
If you'd like additional information, please contact Mary Brindle.

CONDOLENSCES TO BRAD JOHNSON
 

Robert (Bob) P. Johnson, father of EMRC member Brad Johnson, passed away last week. He was 96 years old.
 
Next to love for his family, the most important part of his identity was his military service in World War II.  He was a Navy Seabee (Construction Battalion) stationed in the Pacific.  Their noteworthy achievement was transforming captured islands into some of the largest airfields in the world (at that time).
 
He spent most of his career in sales working for Holden Printing.  He loved being with family and friends and telling stories.  
 
Brad's mom had dementia for 15 years and Bob's dad was a devoted caregiver the entire time. Brad said it was the experience of helping his parents and seeing how hard it was for his dad, that led him to his current line of work helping seniors and their families.
