COMMUNITY LISTENING SESSION

First Community Listening Session on Race and Justice to Be Held Tonight, Tuesday, July 28

Whatcom County and City of Bellingham officials are hosting a listening series on race and justice, an opportunity for community members to share their experiences and their ideas for how leaders can make meaningful, effective changes.

The first of the four scheduled sessions will be held Tuesday, July 28, from 7:00 to 9:00 pm.  Preregistration is recommend (www.cob.org/listen0728). The Zoom meeting ID is 958 0522 4763 and the password is 123. 

You can also connect to the meeting by phone at any of the following numbers:

  • (253) 215-8782
  • (346) 248-7799
  • (669) 900-6833

This and future sessions will be aired live on BTV and the City’s YouTube channel.

“We intend this to be the beginning step in a continuum that includes joining communities nationwide in doing the hard work of identifying how we dismantle structural racism in our organizations and our community,” said Bellingham Mayor Seth Fleetwood, who helped initiate the series.

Whatcom County Executive Satpal Sidhu said community leaders are receiving many requests for action. “We intend this listening series to be the first step in a process of understanding our community’s experiences with racism and injustice and taking steps to effectively address these issues,” he said. “It is the beginning of a dialogue that will result in necessary changes.

CHALK WEBSITE & PHOTOS!

The photos are up!!! You can scroll through all of them, and click on any one to enlarge it. The map is now static, showing all the events. I am SO excited! I don’t think we got photos of everything, and there are some duplicates, but what we have is quite a testament to how much fun we can have safely in this neighborhood, and how much beauty and whimsey and love and connection shines through. Thank you again! (And thanks to Jonny Kemp for taking on such a huge task! Little did I know what I was asking…)

LOST WATCH

Men’s style Seiko, gold color, brown leather band.  After waiting for it to turn up in my house somewhere over last couple weeks, I strongly believe that it must have fallen out of my pocket on one of my almost daily walks in the neighborhood, as that is last place I remember having it.  Hoping someone came across it in the last 2-3 weeks and picked it up, maybe even during the July 5 chalk fest.  Thanks! ~ Christy Mann  Elm Street
