While the Civic Media Center hasn’t yet opened up, volunteers have been engaged in significant mutual aid efforts that are helping our community in these difficult times.
Organizers from the Free Grocery Store and Food Not Bombs have used the CMC as a home base for serving hundreds of folks each week. Books to Prisoners has been operational for the past two months, sending books to prisoners throughout Florida and the southeast. Groups like Florida Prisoner Solidarity and Dream Defenders regularly use the space for staging for actions and protests.
We have been able to do awesome programming online on Zoom. On March 10, the CMC Virtual Book Club will begin meeting, this month reading Zora Neale Hurston’s Their Eyes Were Watching God.
