At the beginning of February, 2017, Kristin Clarens & Amanda Sovik-Johnston knew they needed to bring together their Charlottesville community in a way that would truly make a difference to local immigrant families while at the same time encouraging their children to learn and participate in a way that could teach them about civic duty. Families in Action as born! We invite you to take a tour and see what we've done so far.
Families in Charlottesville gathered together to make tamales at Mas Tapas to sell at an upcoming event hosted by Random Row.
The group gathered again on a chilly March night to help start seeds at Bellair Farm for the UACC, an organization that grows vegetables in low-income neighborhoods throughout Charlottesville.
Our gathering at the Charlottesville Discovery Museum was a huge hit. Kids watched a planetarium show and learned about how science impacts all of us.
