Acknowledging the Past/Looking To the Future
Posted July 31, 2005
For North American GBC Leaders, Gurukula Alumni, and Parents
A representative panel of North American leaders wish to humbly invite Gurukula alumni and parents to meet with us in Los Angeles at the New Dwarka temple on Friday, August 5th from 2 pm until 5 pm. This is the same weekend as the LA Rathayatra.
The purpose of the meeting is to come together, acknowledge the past, develop a groundwork for healing, and envision together how to move forward to build a healthy and supportive Krishna conscious society.
The meeting is the second of several get-togethers to be held in North America. The first meeting was held in New York City the day after the NY Rathayatra.
Present will be representative GBC members to offer their apologies for the mistreatment and abuse that many of our young people suffered as children in ISKCON schools and communities. We will continue with a facilitated discussion and will include short updates about the Chapter 11 Confirmation and the Child Protection Office.
Please come and share your thoughts, hopes, visions and ideas.
