Help Us Put a Mural On The Dr. Edwin Coleman Jr. Center
The Friendly Area Neighbors Equity Action Team would like to apply for a matching grant to put a mural on the community center at 1545 West 22nd Avenue in Westmoreland Park, renamed the Dr. Edwin Coleman Jr. Center by the Eugene City Council on April 24, 2018. Dr. Coleman was an African American leader in Eugene advocating for human and civil rights for all for more than 50 years and lived close to Westmoreland park.
Can you help us to honor Dr. Coleman's legacy to our community by becoming a sponsor of the mural project? Read more information.
Join us to Learn More About the Hate and Bias Prevention and Response Toolkit
The FAN Neighborhood Association is committed to working to find ways to make the Friendly Area Neighborhood a safe and welcoming place. In the last year, the FAN board passed a resolution committed to the human rights of all to be free from discrimination, created & began distributing our Equity yard signs, and hosted the play We Are Neighbors. As a continued part of this effort, we are partnering with HRNI to learn more about the City of Eugene’s Hate & Bias Prevention and Response Toolkit. This toolkit will be the focus of our general meeting on January 23rd at 6:30 pm at the Friendly St. Church of God.
July 3rd, 2018 the FAN Board unanimously approved the following:
Friendly Area Neighbors Equity Resolution:
The Friendly Area Neighborhood Association is committed to the human right of all to be free from discrimination. Discrimination against people on the basis of their national origin, race or ethnicity, religion, immigration status, language of origin, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation or identity, socioeconomic status, housing status, or disability, should simply not be tolerated. The number of hate crimes and bias incidents reported in Eugene has been increasing and no doubt many go unreported. FAN's Equity Action Team will work with residents and local institutions (schools, churches, businesses) to foster and sustain a neighborhood environment that is diverse, inclusive, safe, and welcoming; encourage the implementation of practices, projects, and events that help prevent such harmful incidents; and, effectively respond to hate crimes and bias incidents when they occur.
Contact us via email at email@example.com.
You can help to stop hate from spreading in our neighborhood. There are things we all can do.
Please share this message with your communities. We should all know what to do to report hate and bias incidents.
If you are interested in becoming involved with the Equity Action Team or you can’t attend the picnic and would like to request a yard sign, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
