2020 Post-Election Resources
Posted October 26, 2020, 3:27 PM by Noki Seekao Updated November 12, 2020, 3:35 PM
This year has been a lot to deal with and with the upcoming election, no matter your position, only adds to our exhaustion and anxiety. While we may not know the outcome, we would like to offer resources and invite you to attend a gathering, so as a community we can move forward in a positive way post-election (November 3).

Second Helping: CCA@CCA Post Election Town Hall
Presented by CCA@CCA in collaboration with student groups
This Town Hall event is a response to the election, no matter what the outcome. Food is a powerful way to bring people together, and our hope is that sharing and centering will be the theme for this town hall, amidst troubling uncertainty about the future post-election. Food is a way to invest in our communities, and invest in ourselves. It is an act of nourishment, an act of resistance.
