Seasongood Square and Marion Triangle Gardens
Thank you to everyone who offered to help with the Seasongood Square and Marion Triangle Gardens. This area desperately needs a tune up. I have been helping with these gardens, but down two gardeners this year.
A few hours a month would be so helpful and a little expertise would be great as well. Please come and get in the dirt with your neighbors. Please bring your own gloves and tools.
I plan to be there this Friday, 7/10 9-11:00 am
Also Saturday, 7/18 9-11:00 am.

NANA Beautification Team
The recent murders of Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and George Floyd have ignited conversations on racial injustices highlighted by the trend of police brutality against Black people in this country. The comments surrounding diversity, inclusion, and equity in relation to NANA at the most recent general body meeting highlight the importance of acknowledging, learning, and working to dismantle these issues to create a more inclusive community.
Below is a link that provides a list of movies, shows, and documentaries that can help educate on the injustices that are the foundation of the protests we’re witnessing not only in the United States, but worldwide. Not acknowledging the issues will not make them disappear, but will in fact serve to protect these issues while allowing them to continue to perpetuate racial injustice. These pieces provide a perspective that is important to understand as North Avondale continues the work of becoming a more inclusive and equitable neighborhood. Feel free to share with your family and friends. Education and the conversations that follow are imperative if change is to occur.
