Our doors will open at 6:30 PM, as we begin to set up for the evening's events.
At 7:00 PM, anyone interested may participate in Open Talk in our Library. This week, the discussion will be led by President Gordon Sauer.
From 8:00 - 8:10 PM, we will have a short intermission for refreshments, stretching, mingling, etc.
At 8:10 PM, we will gather for a very special presentation by veteran GAAMC speaker and storyteller, Tim Tyler. He returns to educate us about the Equality Act, which was recently passed in the House of Representatives and is now in the Senate. A Realtor® by trade, Tim will tell us what the Equality Act is and how it impacts us, in our homes and where we live.
As a member of the National Association of Gay and Lesbian Real Estate Professionals, Tim will focus on LGBT and fair housing and compare New Jersey’s laws against the nation’s. Highlights from a survey by Iowa State University, just released in April will shock the senses with its scale of mortgage denials and other forms of bias.
Tim will bring his message home by shedding light on discrimination in housing: what to know, what to do, and where to turn.
The following video explains a little bit about how HRC and NAGLREP are working together, and show some of the powerhouses of activism share their strengths, wisdom, passions and other resources.

This evening, instead of a discussion followed by a speaker, or instead of a film followed by a discussion, we will try something new. GAAMC leaders will choose some of their favorite TED Talks to share. We plan an evening full of viewing, discussing, more viewing and more discussing. Join us for a healthy serving of “ideas worth spreading.”
TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment, and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. Meanwhile, independently run TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world.
TED talks are now available on most platforms, via apps, including smartphones, tablets, and TED channels on smart TV's. You may create a free subscription on TED.com and link your app to your account, to select your favorite topics. Each day, your TED app will suggest a new talk to view from your list of interests.

Last summer The Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey launched a new summer touring company called The Shrewd Mechanicals. The work of this tight-knit ensemble of five young professionals – four actors and a tour manager – met with much acclaim in their debut season and we are happy to announce that they will be back on the road in the summer of 2019!
Last year, the troupe presented a piece called Shakespeare Gumbo, and this season the hour-long program will focus on the special brand of temporary madness that overtakes people when they fall madly in love! As in 2018, this year’s production, entitled Verily, Madly, Thine will feature a wonderful array of moments from Shakespeare’s plays as well as a few selections from more contemporary authors who have been inspired by one of Shakespeare’s originals. Verily, Madly Thine also features a delightful sprinkling of music, and in total, these 60 minutes about falling in love will make you fall in love with this delightful and entertaining collection of scenes inhabited by the victims of Cupid’s arrows.
Don’t miss this wonderful quartet as they bring to life the joy, wit, poetry, and music of the world’s greatest playwright —and those he’s inspired.
SPECIAL NOTE: We are unsure where this event will be hosted. We expect to host it at our regular home, the Morristown Unitarian Fellowship. However, the property will be undergoing construction from June through September, meaning there is a chance the building will not be available. We expect to have a firm location set by July 15.
