June Tent Talks on SATV and Online

Every Thursday in June at noon, the SAF presented a speaker on a contemporary issue relating to human rights and social justice at the Salem Witch Trials Memorial. If you missed one or all of the talks, you are in luck. SATV recorded all four Tent Talks and has been airing them on Channel 3 at scheduled times.

Thanks to all who attended and participated in June Tent Talks series at the Witch Trials Memorial. We have planned another series of speakers for this coming October on Thursdays at noon.
