Turning talk into action is the aim of a Community Engagement Fair coming Sunday afternoon to the Sonoma County Fairgrounds.
More than 80 activist and service organizations will be present to showcase opportunities for individuals to become involved in a range of issues: immigrant rights, the environment, the LGBTQ community, sustainable agriculture and others.
Co-hosting the gathering from noon to 5 p.m. at the fairgrounds’ Garrett Hall are the North Bay Organizing Project, Sonoma County Conservation Action, The Farmers Guild, the Redwood Chapter of the Sierra Club, the Alliance for Regenerative Communities and Unitarian Universalist Congregation.
Participating organizations include Petaluma Bounty, North Bay Jobs with Justice, Sonoma County Library, Sonoma County Bicycle Coalition and Restorative Resources.
Admission is free. Organizers describe the Community Engagement Fair as a “grassroots, non-partisan, collective effort aimed at civic engagement” and welcoming of “groups and individuals of all political, economic and spiritual beliefs that promote love and equality and that condemn hate and oppression.”
