Good morning –
I want to let you know about a wonderful group called “Redwood City Together,” and about their event on May 20th. It’s a collaboration of caring community members and organizations, including Redwood City, working to build a stronger, inclusive, and welcoming community.
The key principle of Redwood City Together is that people from all backgrounds want the same thing: safe streets for our children, neighbors who look out for each other and a thriving community where we can prosper together. As our community continues to grow and change, Redwood City Together believes we’re most successful when we appreciate our shared values and build on the strength of our diversity. The group is coordinated by Redwood City 2020, a collaborative of key public and private organizations in our community working to ensure the health and success of all children, youth and families served by the Redwood City School District. Together, the partners of RWC 2020 identify barriers and then implement collaborative approaches that will open the doors to success. Please join Redwood City Together for a fun-filled, festive event on Sunday May 20, in celebration of our diverse Redwood City and North Fair Oaks communities. This free event offers an opportunity to share in the varied backgrounds of Redwood City’s community members, see how human connections can be built through the arts, share life experiences of immigrants, immigrant youth, and long-time residents in our community, and help build stronger intergenerational connections.
The event features live music and dance, children’s arts and crafts from around the world, photo exhibits expressing the incredible array of backgrounds of our community members, video stories, and more. Activities take place on Courthouse Square as well as inside the San Mateo County History Museum – under the beautiful rotunda, in historic Courtroom A, and throughout the rest of this jewel of Downtown Redwood City.
