Petaluma Bounty will be tabling alongside many other organizations and community groups, highlighting ways to get engaged in positive social change in your community this year. From the event organizers:
A healthy democracy is determined not simply by what happens on voting day, but by what takes place between elections—the ongoing actions of citizens, neighborhoods and organizations working to build a better world.
Ready to engage? Turn complaints into actions? Want to help secure civil liberties, protect the disenfranchised and empower a more equitable economy and resilient ecology, but not sure how or where to plug in?
Join us on January 29th in Santa Rosa for a FREE Community Engagement Fair, a day-long exhibition of organizations and community groups from across the North Bay looking for volunteers and activists just like you. Whether you have just a few hours a month or all the time in the world, whether you’ve got specific skills or just a can-do attitude, whether your passion is the environment, immigrant rights, the LGBTQ community or sustainable agriculture, you’ll find something to spark your passions as you to roll up those sleeves.

This event is a grassroots, non-partisan, collective effort aimed at civic engagement. We welcome groups and individuals of ALL political, economic and spiritual beliefs that promote love and equality and that condemn hate and oppression.
