A SERIES OF EVENTS TO FIGHT BACK AGAINST RACISM IN NEHALEM

We are in a defining moment in American history, and in the history of Tillamook County and the Oregon Coast. The newly established organization, the Oregon Coast Love Coalition (OCLC) invites you to join us in a weekend celebrating Dr. Martin Luther King's message of love, hope and unity January 14th -16th, 2017.

On Saturday, January 14th at 7 p.m., join the conversation with Helen Hill, author of "A Brief History of Fear and Intolerance in Tillamook County" at the Hoffman Center for the Arts, 594 Laneda Avenue, Manzanita, OR. A $5 donation is suggested. After the author reads excerpts from the book, the OCLC will host a book discussion.

A Community discussion and healing circle will take place on Sunday, January 15that 4 p.m. hosted by Ginger and Brigham Edwards and North Fork 53, 77282 OR-53, Nehalem, OR. Dr. Dawn Sea Kahrs, DC, owner of Graceful Waves Chiropractic in Nehalem will guide us through some healing exercises to open hearts and encourage healing from the past. We will then engage in a meaningful conversation to address our strengths and faults as it relates to living in small coastal communities that are safe and inclusive for all. Please bring a potluck item.

The OCLC will host a Unity breakfast Monday, January 16th at 10 a.m. at the Nehalem Bay United Methodist Church, 36050 10th St, Nehalem, OR. Breakfast will be provided by Coastal Soul owner LaNicia Williams. A $10 donation is suggested. We will gather to honor each other in our commitment to continue the dream of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. for equality for all, no matter you race, religious affiliation, sexual orientation or anything else used to separate and divide a community. This will be followed by a Unity walk blessing the land, paying homage for those who paved the way before us and to make a declaration of inclusiveness and love for those in our present and future.

The mission of the Oregon Coast Love Coalition is to ensure the Oregon Coast is a place where justice and inclusion are so tended to that anyone can visit or live here and be respected regardless of race, economic standing, faith and sexual identity.
