Accomplishments

We’ve had significant monthly meetings:

On January 25, we marked our first year of existence with One Year: Looking Back and Looking Forward, a community forum moderated by ENAC’s Mindy Woods and featuring panelists Nathan Aberg from Sierra Club, Alicia Crank from YWCA, Brandy Donaghy from Indivisible Washington Plus and Donnie Griffin of the Edmonds Diversity Commission

On February 22, Brandy Donaghy, this time for the Red Cross, presented critical information on Disaster Preparedness. with Thursday February 22nd at 6:30 pm at Edmonds United Methodist Church.

ENAC’S recent activities:

On February 8, we showed “Black Girl in Suburbia,” a documentary by Melissa Lowery, followed by a great Courtney Wooten-led discussion.

As a high note for the end of Black History Month, on February 24, we helped bring actress and storyteller Eva Abrams back to the Edmonds Library for Brer Rabbit & Friends: African Storytelling for All, with support from S3 from Suburbia Rising, the Edmonds Diversity Commission and Sno-Isle Library, and with thanks to volunteers for their work and their snack donations.

We’ve responded with action to current situations:

On February 19, five days after the Parkland High School shooting and in conjunction with Moms Demand Action, the Alliance for Gun Responsibility and Indivisible Edmonds, we co-organized and provided on-the-ground support for “A Rally of Hope: Together We Will Reduce Gun Violence.” More than 300 people marched from Edmonds-Woodway High School past College Place Middle School to College Place Elementary, a cold walk inspired by another chilling episode. This work continues.

Also in early February, we supported the Weary family, whose teenage children were threatened and called unspeakable names, with a letter of outrage and support from ENAC to news outlets. Individual members did more—giving the family financial support, listening ears, and sincere friendship.
