PARC Needs a little Support……

Peoples’ Action for Rights and Community (PARC) is not a huge space, but its existence facilitates many essential functions.  PARC is the only grassroots space that is open 7 days a week and is one of the only places where people can meet, organize, and access various resources at no charge.  We need your support.

As I write this email, there is a couple who lives outdoors preparing some lunch in the PARC kitchen, Richardson Grove Action Now activists are working on a letter to Governor Jerry Brown, posting information on Facebook, and preparing for a meeting and non-violent direct action training,  Kombucha and Rejuvelac are brewing for the people, a man who lives on the streets is relaxing in the yard (free from police and other harassment), our beloved rescued dog is napping, someone is taking time out  from work to play the community guitar, and I just organized some of PARC’s free shelf full of clothes, books, etc.  We also just loaned out some flier hanging supplies for the “Free the Pee” campaign (working for access for all to Eureka city public bathrooms).

If you are unfamiliar with PARC:

We’re focused on justice and care…
PARC is an office and meeting space. 

PARC volunteers assist people who’ve had their rights violated.

PARC volunteers also work on connecting with people and communities to imagine and create healthy and supportive alternatives to oppressive structures.

Everything at PARC is donation and volunteer based.  No one pays for assistance, space, literature or other resources. 

Once a month, however, we must pay rent, PG&E (and we put ‘No Smart Meter’ signs throughout our complex), and long distance phone lines.  That is why we make this request from anyone who realizes the importance of the space and work that is done at PARC.  No other place like it!  Come by and check it out. *
