MLK Day of Neighborhood Anti-racist Action
In the spirit of volunteerism to celebrate the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., The ESSCA Board asks that you make a plan to spend some time in community service in lieu of our January meeting. There are lots of possibilities, but at the very least please consider spending the time you might have spent attending our meeting, perhaps one or two hours, taking a step against racism. Please think of that one thing you can do to help make our community a place where everyone feels they belong.
Here are some ideas, but please share your ideas with us!
