Please join the Indigenous Solidarity Working Group for a community conversation rethinking our individual, community and cultural practices around the Thanksgiving holiday.

How do we best practice our decolonial values around the "Thanksgiving" holiday? What new rituals and practices may we need to create?

How do we honor gratitude and abundance at this time while simultaneously holding the brutal history of colonization in the Americas? How do we bring our families, loved ones, and communities together around shifting our culture and practices?

We invite deep inquiry, and open ourselves to the possibility of leaving with more questions than answers. We hope you can join us.

Do you dream of getting to know plants intimately? We're setting up a daily watering schedule for a set of planters at the farm. Come to the Alameda Makerfarm (now Bay Area Maker Farm) to get the know some of your flora neighbors at the farm. Pick a day when you can come each week for 20-30 minutes. 2701 Main Street (but next to Ploughshares Nursery, look for the signs!) We also need to get some mulch moved in there this Thursday during our weekly volunteer time 5:00-sunset. Who can help?
A new capacity-building program is looking for frontline community leaders from across California to connect with peers, take their skills to the next level, and catalyze transformative change. There is a stipend for participation. The deadline to apply has been extended to January 19th.
Hey everyone! The deadline for our Resilient Hubs Leadership Training program is only one week away. Don't forget to apply!
I would think there would be a big role for NorCal orgs to fulfill this measure.
I'd like to share a rather unusual free resource...parenting tips bumper stickers. Advancing Parenting, a Camarillo CA nonprofit organization, produces parenting tips bumper stickers and makes them available at no cost to schools, organizations, agencies, clinics, businesses, and individuals. There are fifty-one in a set and each one communicates a parenting behavior or practice generally recognized as supporting the healthy development of children. Just one will be read thousands of times! Bumper stickers are a unique and powerful way to educate everyone about parenting. At stoplights drivers and passengers point, smile, and nod. Conversations start up and often a phone is used to take a pic of the sticker right at the stoplight. Presumably, they are being shared on social media. It's wonderful to see! Sets of the stickers can be put in holders and placed on counters and tables so folks can select one or more for their cars. Visit www.advancingparenting.org to order this free resource. Use a computer...our website is not optimized for phones. Please share.

Making suggestions for Oakland's Capital Improvement program. This is from a creek coalition newsletter, so ignore the specifics about the group submission. Community input now for City's Capital Improvement Program Kristin Hathaway, Measure DD Program Manager, wishes Coalition participants to be aware that the City’s Capital Improvement Program is now seeking community ideas for the next CIP cycle and the process for the upcoming City budget. Deadline: October 31, 2020. Take a look at the brief online Capital Improvement Program Public Request Form. Kristin plans to submit a CIP request for the Channel Improvement Project on behalf of the Coalition. However, she wants all Coalition participants to consider this opportunity to submit other requests using the above form. Note that this process is focused on capital projects, but the boundaries seem flexible. For example, “repairing sidewalks” is included in the “Transportation” category, raising the possibility that repair of the Lake Merritt pathway problems might be considered: “Transportation: Capital projects here improve safety for walking, biking and/or driving. Examples include paving streets; repairing sidewalks… “
Super psyched to the Valley Water, a huge water company in the south bay looking for inclusion and diversity in their work place. Someone in this group might be a good potential for this work.

Please help get the word out. Thank you! Building Bridges Series Mutual Aid: Serving Climate Justice Sunday July 19 3-5pm Pacific Time During this time of social change, we are seeing a blossoming of solidarity networks, alternative economies and cooperative ways to directly respond to needs in the community. In this free webcast, we will focus on the grassroots activity called Mutual Aid and how it helps promote more equitable and just ways of responding to climate change driven disasters. Perhaps even laying the groundwork for new systems in this time of transition. We will be in conversation with longtime Mutual Aid organizers and their direct experience with how MA works and how it helps serve those in marginalized communities. We will also be asking how we can better support MA work with self-care practices, so that those who are involved can avoid burnout and this vital service can be done regeneratively.
