In Our City

in-our-city.jpg

In Our City will be the first of an ongoing presentation series that aims to bring forward information on local issues in climate change, toxicant exposure in the home, and access to non-profit resources within Southern California. Please join us Saturday, September 14, 2019 for our first program, 6:30-7:15pm at the Artisan Work Lab, 12907 Hadley Street, Whittier, CA 90601. Snacks will be provided!

In Our City is brought to you by Acelia Larios and Alejandro Fabian. Acelia graduated in 2016 with a degree in Integrative Biology from UC Berkeley. In 2019 she continued on to UC Davis where she studied Environmental Toxicology and worked with local communities to discuss toxic exposure in their cities.

Alejandro graduated in 2016 from UC Berkeley with a degree in Bioanthropology and continued on to UC Davis where he studied the affects of pollutants in environmental systems.

This program started with the deep desire to create a space where people could come together to discuss the important issues facing our communities. We hope to see you there September 14th!

This is a collaboration between Black Water Rising and Catalyst Network of Communities.

Human Library Cancelled

human library - 06.22.19 - cancelled.jpg

I've got some bad news. Although we've been excited for the Human Library this Saturday, June 22nd, earlier this morning my father passed away. He had been in the hospital ICU for the past 3 months and I had been there with him really 4-5 times per week. We explored the possibility of hosting the event without me but we realize we don't have the capacity to pull it off.

Unfortunately, we've come to the conclusion that we need to cancel (or postpone, we'll see) the Human Library scheduled for this Saturday. I really appreciate your support for our work in our community and I hope you understand. I apologize for the inconvenience if you had been planning to come.

Regards,

Eric Leocadio
Human Library Organizer
