When: Sun., Feb. 10, 5-7 p.m. 2019
Home Away from Home working group within Equity Arcata invites local college students and all members of the public to a community potluck from 5 to 7 p.m. at the D Street Neighborhood Center on 13tth and D in Arcata. The purpose of this event is to promote bridge-building within our community. Volunteers are requested to bring a “soul food” dish (enough to serve 10 people) to help celebrate Black History Month. This free event will also have a “free stuff” table. Supporters are asked to bring donations of items such as toothpaste, laundry soap, shampoo, and toilet paper to help support students on tight budgets. The event is a “zero waste” event. Contact Malcolm Chanaiwa at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. The goal of Equity Arcata is to create a welcoming, safe, and racially equitable community, starting with HSU and the City of Arcata, by eliminating racial disparities for all people of color in housing, health, education, and employment. Community partners include Equity Alliance of the North Coast, Humboldt State University, Arcata Chamber of Commerce, Northern Humboldt Union High School District, Humboldt County Office of Education, and the Retired Senior Volunteer Program of the Area 1 Agency on Aging.
