A Red Circle
The name encompasses the connectedness of the essential components that are necessary for community betterment, and all blood is red. A circle represents safety and unity. Our mission statement is the holistic betterment of our community; reversing the effects of racism one person and a cause at a time. Our vision is to restore North County to a safe, vibrant, sustainable, and economically sound community that remains diverse, and in doing so, help heal the racial strife.

A Red Circle's focus areas are Employment, Education, Holistic living, Policy, and the Arts and we have created three projects, two special events, and eight programs that encompass one or more of these focus areas. Projects: Regional Economic Development, Equitable School Funding Collaborative, and Healthy Food Access. Events: Vote, Rule, or Run and Connections - Healing Tables: A World Café on Racism. Programs: Career Creation, Healthy Flavor Bistro & Garden, Back to School Savings Account Setup, Transitioning Well (with St. Vincent Home for Children), Entrepreneurship Training, Education Advocacy Coalition, Parent Cafes, and Enrichment Seminars.
We have great plans for 2018 and would love for you to support us lift-up North County residents and the community!
Our Education Advocacy Coalition has assisted in keeping six young students (so far) from being suspended or sent to detention. We have also located tutors and mentors for children when other, larger organizations could not.
Several guests of Healthy Flavor Bistro & Garden have remarked on how they did not realize so many everyday foods can be nutritious and still taste good. Thanks to the bistro, we have helped children and their families increase their intake of fresh fruits and vegetables. Also, we conduct the Enrichment Seminars at Healthy Flavor once a month so participants not only enjoy good food but learn about how food and wellness go hand-in-hand.
