Busy week! Celebration of Dr. MLK + Slo Food Co-op + Fostering Understanding

MONDAY, JAN 15: Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration

12:30-4PM @ Unitarian Universalist Church, 2201 Lawton Ave, SLO

NAACP-SLO is holding its annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration on January 15, 2024, in San Luis Obispo.

🙏 This event will bring together faith groups and the community generally to celebrate Dr. King's contributions to the civil and human rights movements through nonviolence. This year's theme is "Pilgrimage to Nonviolence," and the event will feature and elaborate on excerpts from Dr. King's memoir Stride Toward Freedom. The event will include food and entertainment from 1230p.m. to 4:00 p.m. and will feature guest speaker San Luis Obispo Mayor Erica Stewart. 🤎

➡️ Diversity Coalition San Luis Obispo County is a proud sponsor of the event and invites the entire community to join!

TUESDAY, JAN 16 (and every Tuesday in January and February): Support Diversity Coalition

SLO Food Co-op: 2494 Victoria Ave, San Luis Obispo

We're excited to share that 2% of SLO Food Co-op Tuesday's sales during the months of January and February will go to Diversity Coalition! 🙏

🙏 SLO Food Co-op 2% program is designed to give back 2% of each of their Tuesday’s total sales to a worthy local nonprofit during a 2 month window.

🙏 What this means and how others can support is by shopping on Tuesdays at the Co-op, located at 2494 Victoria Avenue, San Luis Obispo!

➡️ When a customer shops on Tuesday, 2% of their purchase goes to Diversity Coalition! 🙌🏼 Cashiers will also ask if a customer would like to roundup their total to the next dollar. If the customer agrees, 100% of the roundups will be donated!

WEDNESDAY, JAN 17: Speaking Out Against Dehumanizing Rhetoric
