"NOT IN OUR TOWN"
Friday, April 30 at 5:30 p.m.
STAND AGAINST RACISM DAY
Not in Our Town tells the uplifting story of how the residents of Billings, Montana, joined together when their neighbors were threatened by white supremacists. Townspeople of all races and religions swiftly moved into action. Religious and community leaders, labor union volunteers, law enforcement, the local newspapers and concerned individuals stood united and spoke loudly for a hate-free community, proclaiming in no uncertain terms "Not In Our Town!" This critically acclaimed PBS special sparked a national campaign against hate crimes that continues to grow each year.
Sponsored by the Civil Rights Division of the Attorney General's Office, Charleston Area Alliance, Create WV, NAACP-Charleston, OneKanawha, St. John' Episcopal Church, Taylor Books, Temple Israel, Unitarian Universalist Congregation, WV FREE and YWCA.

You’ll meet leading architects who innovate in residential as well as commercial (including school) construction, green homeowners, certified green builders, and folks can talk with contractors who are getting their certification as RESNET Home Energy Raters-the people who can perform the home energy audits required by EnergyStar rating systems.
