Today’s Claremont news and upcoming reminders

We’re with you
As we work to cover the news, the Claremont COURIER staff makes every effort to stay out of the story and to observe and document events as they transpire.
But as our nation, state and city anguish over the killing of George Floyd, so do we. As demonstrators march down our city streets, please know that as we work, we walk in concert with those fighting for equality and justice for black communities.
We hear you. We see you. And we are with you.
What do we do next?
At 9 a.m. this Sunday, June 7, “Are Shouting & Silence Our Only Two Options?” a discussion led by Sam Daley Harris will be presented on Zoom.
The Claremont?United Church of Christ is hosting the session, which is free and open to the public.
“We are all trying to create a better normal, learn how to do that from a seasoned activist who will teach us how to use our voice to create substantive change in our society,” the event description states.
Mr. Daley-Harris founded Civic Courage, an organization that helps nonprofits guide members to better define themselves as “citizen leaders and to use public speaking and the media to inspire Americans to engage powerfully with their democracy.” He coached Citizen’s Climate Lobby its first seven years and is the author of Reclaiming Our Democracy: Healing the Break between People and Government.
