Our voice is BUILDing
The Latino Leadership Network (LLN) would like to share an opportunity with all members of BUILD.
The State Parks Department is an inclusive place for enjoying our state’s lush green spaces and allowing time for health and healing. On May 22, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. at Millersylvania State Park (less than 12 miles south of Olympia), Ranger Janet Shonk will lead a two-hour guided hike with options along the route for folks to turn back if they prefer a shorter excursion. The group size will be limited to 15 or 20 for the guided hike portion, but feel free to stay and network or socialize afterwards.
If interested in the guided hike, please preregister here.
There is no charge for the guided hike, however a Discover Pass is required for vehicle access to state parks. For more information about the Discover Pass and exemptions, please visit the Discover Pass web page. If purchasing a pass is a barrier, passes are often available for checkout at local libraries.
If you need more information or have questions, contact Makaela Kroin, Folk & Traditional Arts Program Coordinator of the State Parks & Recreation Commission.
Join us on Thursday, May 20th, from 9:00am to 12:00pm for our May General Membership Meeting where we will meet and hear from each of the candidates running to be the next Executive Leaders of BUILD! Attached is the calendar appointment with zoom information and we plan to send the agenda out soon.
Join us this Friday, May 7 at 1pm PT / 4pm ET for a live discussion marking the centenary of:
The 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre
The 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre, which occurred in an area known as “Black Wall Street,” is not mentioned in most American history books, but it is widely regarded as one of the most terrifying events of racial violence to occur in the US. Armed, white mobs murdered hundreds of Blacks and set fire to a prosperous Black area, the Greenwood District, both displacing and economically devastating thousands of residents. This centenary event will feature a lively discussion from a diverse group of panelists who will explore this history, its enduring impacts, and reparations.
