«No-Thanks» giving
(All ages, free)

Since 1970 the fourth Thursday of November («Thanksgiving») has been recognized as the National Day of Mourning by indigenous peoples in MA, and since 1975 as Unthanksgiving Day by indigenous peoples in CA. Others refer to it as «Thankskilling» or «Thankstaking».

On top of its problematic and harmful colonialist roots, Thanksgiving can be a tough holiday for folks who find themselves away from friends and family.

We invite all folks of all backgrounds to come join us at Marrow for a night of eating, conversing, storytelling, games, art-making, and honoring the stolen land we operate on and the people it was taken from.

If you have requests for activities or would like to speak, please reach out and let us know!

If you can, please bring a dish or drink that's meaningful to you or that you enjoy! No pressure if you're not able though — all are welcome to come and eat. We do ask if you bring food that it be nut free and that you save and/or write down any ingredient info, so that folks with food sensitivities, restrictions, or allergies can make informed decisions about what to eat.
