The Racial Justice Committee hosts an online conversation series named for Judy Brooks, long-time member of LWV Amherst and active citizen of the Town of Amherst. Originally this series was identified as part of LWVA's tradition of "brown bag lunches" (bring your own lunch!) to discuss matters of concern to the Amherst Community. It was renamed in April 2022.
