Next General Meeting ……. Monday March 11, 5:30 pm

Chico Branch of the Butte County Library

A Chat with CHAT! This month, we’ll meet Janet Brown. She’s on the Advisory Board for CHAT (Chico Housing Action Team) and she’ll bring us up to date on their mission to provide housing options for our most vulnerable Chico community members.

We’ll also hear from Christine Mac Shane, a local artist who is presenting a grant-funded exhibition at monca called “The Labels Project”, An interactive exhibition “The Lives Behind The Labels”  which opens at monca on March 7, 2024. “As we know, we are all labeled in various ways,” according to art therapist practitioner Christine MacShane, a painter and muralist recognized by the City. The exhibit is designed to challenge our assumptions about unhoused people.

Bring your questions for both speakers! Invite a  friend and join us. We’ll conduct some business, give away door prizes, and spend some quality time with our fellow AAUW Chico members.  email: aauwchico@gmail.com for more information
