“Black Lives Matter. Until we as a country manifest this belief in our actions - not just our thoughts, there will be no justice.

- Part of a statement written by a business in Santa Monica to its customers.⠀

SoCalATA is looking to co-create openings for our members to foster hope and resilience in order to make choices that are impactful but also sustainable. WE can’t do this without first meeting ourselves where we are at (recognizing burnout, our privilege or limits). We invite you to honor your capacity and choose how you want to participate.  We welcome you to start where you are, just start....No act is too small.  A conversation can be a powerful protest. We believe that it  is our collective and consistent efforts that make a difference.
