– Community Comfort Food Potluck. Yes, we will have food trucks, but we also all bring our comfort food that speaks to our homes and cultures to share with each other.

– Face Painting for adults and kids. Show your love, your pride, your patriotism on your face! 

– VOTING!!! We will have escorts to walk people over to the polls to VOTE! And yes….we are working on getting golf carts draped in American flags to shuttle people over there. Wheeee!!!

-Education, education, education. There will be tables with information and people to talk to about the various ballot initiatives. You can also find out there how to canvass, door knock and help register voters.
