Virtual Programming

At Just Communities, our vision is about ensuring people are connected, respected and valued. During COVID-19 we cannot hold our usual programming in order to respect physical distance, but we want to celebrate our social connections and bring people together in a virtual format.

All sessions are FREE and bilingual (English and Spanish) unless otherwise specified.

All sessions will be offered via:

Facebook Live Series

Racial and economic disparities in access to Mental Health, Childcare, Language Access, Safe and affordable housing, existed long before the COVID-19 pandemic, and current research suggests that the pandemic - and its economic fallout - is only widening these divides. 

 

People of color and low-income families were already facing crushing burdens and instabilities, stemming in large part from structural racism and a long history of discriminatory practices. 

 

Join Just Communities and community experts this summer  in our Facebook  Live Series of conversations as we talk about the effects and impact COVID-19 has had on our communities. With a lens of diversity, inclusion and equity, community partners will be invited to share about what disparities and inequalities they have seen in their fields of expertise during the pandemic.  Panelists will discuss how these inequities existed prior to COVID-19 and how these gaps widened during the pandemic and offer resources for the community. These sessions will be at no cost and open to the public with Interpretation will be provided.

A look at our monthly

CommUNITY Extravaganzas...

Thank you to everyone who has attended a CommUNITY Virtual Extravaganza! We have been hosting this virtual gathering each month since March 2020 so that community members stay connected during this time.

 

Each time we include a variety of activities so there is something for everyone. For example, we've had dance and workout classes, art projects, discussions on mental health and the outdoors, a cooking class, and a financial literacy workshop.

 

They are always free, open to everyone, and have interpretation (English/Spanish).

Eileen Ramos, a Senior at Pacifica High School and CLI Alumni 2019, says...

“During these unusual times, the Virtual Youth Extravaganza has provided some source of normalcy. I have been able to connect with people in different places who are experiencing the same uncertainty as me. I tune in to the Virtual Youth Extravaganza to connect with others I’d normally not be able to see in person.”
