On Jan. 18, in celebration and remembrance of Martin Luther King Jr., Trips for Kids Marin partnered with Elevated Legacy for a powerful, thought provoking trail ride. After a ride to a redwood grove in Golden Gate Park, participants listened to MLK’s “I Have A Dream” speech and discussed where we are today and what still needs to be accomplished. One father in the group, Chris Randle, shared with the kids how his father worked directly with King as the Chicago organizer for the civil rights movement and recounted personal stories of that time. -Photos courtesy of Trips for Kids Marin
Redwood Credit Union launched a video series to help Marin County students and families manage challenging times. The four free videos are designed to help children, youth and their support networks identify and successfully manage their emotions in times of high stress. RCU partnered with social/emotional learning expert and author Jennifer Miller and NAMI Sonoma to produce the videos on the credit union’s website. “It’s important that the children in our community feel cared for so they can be strong and healthy,” says Mary Jane Burke, Marin County superintendent of schools.
