The Friendly Area Neighbors Association is pleased to announce the formation of a new team. The Equity Action Team (EAT) launched in February and is recruiting new members. The Equity Action Team is focused on promoting and sustaining a welcoming and inclusive environment in the Friendly Area.
EAT will meet the first Thursday of every month, beginning April 5th. The team will be meeting at Adams Elementary (950 W 22nd Ave) in room 11—directly across the street from the toolbox project—enter through the exterior door.
The Equity Action Team seeks to prevent and respond to incidents of hate and bias in our neighborhood and is currently in the process of working with Eugene’s Human Rights & Neighborhood Involvement department to explore actions neighborhood associations can take to prevent hate and create safe and welcoming neighborhoods for all.
