MONTVILLE, NJ - The OneMontville organization held its first evening meeting on Tuesday, February 28, 2017 at the Montville Township Public Library. The group is focused on creating and maintaining a climate of acceptance-respect-kindness within the Montville Township Community.
As the group is now in its second year, members discussed ways to increase the profile of the organization within the community. One such way will be the celebration of the second annual Green In Day on Friday, May 19. Green In Day is an opportunity for all community residents and those who work in Montville to wear green as a visual display of the core attributes of OneMontville: that the community's diversity is celebrated and that all who live or visit here are treated with respect and kindness. The group will also be participating in the Township's upcoming 150th Anniversary and Fourth of July parade and celebration at the end of June.
Members also had a preliminary discussion of forming a "response team" to provide assistance and support to anyone in the community who might experience bias, hate or Anti-Semitism. The members feel that this might be the best way to convey the essence of the organization by supplying acceptance, respect, and kindness in ample doses when it is needed.
