Some more great works from our O2E artists! Their abstract mixed media pieces are unbelievable!! We upcycled art from thrift stores to create these pieces.

Our older campers delved into the world of fairy houses while our younger campers were ‘horsing around’! @ NOVA Creative Reuse Center

Happy Juneteenth! Take this day to read up on its origins if you are unfamiliar. Associated with the emancipation of Black slaves in America, today is a day to acknowledge the atrocities committed during the 200 years of slavery in this nation, followed by systemic racism that to this day we are seeing affect POC in our community. And also to celebrate the freedoms gained and the heritage and culture that has grown out of it.

We continue to listen, read, learn, and grow as we do the work to transform this country to one that is undeniably anti racist and safe for all to thrive.

Happy Pride! ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜🖤🤎

06/05/2020

The foods we eat, the air we breathe, the water we drink and the climate that makes our planet habitable all come from nature. For instance, each year, marine plants produce more than a half of our atmosphere's oxygen, and a mature tree cleans our air, absorbing 22 kilos of carbon dioxide, releasing oxygen in exchange. Despite all the benefits that nature gives us, we still mistreat it. That is why we need to work on that. That is why we need this Observance. #fornature #unep #worldenvironmentday2020 #smallchangebigimpact #choosetoreuse #creativereusecenter #environmentalist #climatechangeaction #gogreen #bansingleuseplastic

Do not let this moment in history become another instance of brief media attention and then back to ignoring our social injustices. Self reflection, learning, listening, questioning, advocating, voting, and being part of a solution. Allies are activists.

White privilege doesn’t mean your life hasn’t been hard. It means that your skin color isn’t one of the things making it harder. We need to do better America, we need to be antiracists.

Repost from @_theotherbox

Reposting this great resource by @goodgoodgoodco.⁣

In an essay for the New York Times, acclaimed professor, award-winning author, and director of the Antiracist Research & Policy Center, @ibramxk dove into the topic of how to combat racism:⁣
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁣
“No one becomes “not racist,” despite a tendency by Americans to identify themselves that way. We can only strive to be “anti-racist” on a daily basis, to continually rededicate ourselves to the lifelong task of overcoming our country’s racist heritage.⁣

We learn early the racist notion that white people have more because they are more; that people of color have less because they are less. I had internalized this worldview by my high school graduation, seeing myself and my race as less than other people and blaming other blacks for racial inequities.⁣

To build a nation of equal opportunity for everyone, we need to dismantle this spurious legacy of our common upbringing.”⁣
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁣
In order to do this, we have to educate ourselves. We can learn about covert white supremacy, follow organizations leading the way for racial equity and justice, watch films, listen to podcasts, and read books. This doesn’t need to be seen as a chore, but can instead be seen as an opportunity — an opportunity to better understand ourselves, love our neighbors, and become the change we wish to see.⁣
