Move the Money by using an ESABA Member Deal: Karibu Grocery and Deli is our feature this week. Try an East Side favorite and get a Free beverage. ESABA is keeping the conversation going and keeping you in the loop. Last week we hosted new Member, Guild to generate dialogue on Equity and we heard some clear directions. Catch up on that conversation on Equity and Next Steps and then help us take it to the next level. This week we're looking to longtime member 180 Degrees to talk about the signs and conditions around human trafficking: a very important topic - in order to believe your eyes, you have to know what they're seeing. Join us as we learn more about making the East Side safer for all of us: East Side Connect! Believe Your Eyes - Help Stop Trafficking.

And don't miss the bus!: the Vaccination Bus that is... June 2
Rush Line is looking for feedback on the Environmental Assessment
Thursday at 11am

Join Krsytal Hollins for a conversation about ESABA Member 180 Degrees and their programs to serve females and female identifiers who are escaping sex trafficking. What are some common signs and how can the community help by being more savvy. Come learn more about how knowing what you are seeing and reaching out with the right referral can be part of the solution.  

Join us for a conversation with members, allies, and resource contacts to make sure the East Side stays informed, nimble, and gets the support it needs. You meet, you question, you learn, you repeat... Thursdays - 11:00am.
