Buy Nothing Day was founded in Vancouver, Canada in 1992. It is celebrated the day after the American Thanksgiving or “Black Friday.”
The holiday of Thanksgiving is being reclaimed as one of thanks-giving and gratitude for the abundance of the harvest as opposed to a day of gluttony. Let us celebrate this time with gratitude for all that makes our lives so abundant.
Our guest speaker will be Colin Stewart who is a young, transgender man. We will also remember transgender persons who have been murdered this year for simply being transgender.
