What Is P.A.R.C.?

Peoples' Action for Rights and Community.  P.A.R.C. People's Actions for Rights and Community... One of the definitions of community is: "a feeling of fellowship with others, as a result of sharing common attitudes, interests, and goals."

Sarah Torres puts it this way:

I'd like to break down this definition and apply it to P.A.R.C.

The people who P.A.R.C. helps mostly seem to have good attitudes about their lives despite their current situation. By looking at the lending library, pamphlets, newspapers, or just zoning out at the helpful information covering most of the walls, I'd say from the volunteers and donors that help keep this safe place open, to the everyday people that need P.A.R.C.'s services, everyone's interests are, to say the least, common. Goals are important in anyone's life. These are some of the goals that apply to the human beings that rely on P.A.R.C.'s services. Goals such as: restroom accessibility with a shower, warm/clean clothing, a safe comfortable environment to hang out in, free phone and internet access, mailing address, among other basic goals... But P.A.R.C. doesn't just try to help supply basic goals and needs, it also helps people understand their rights as humans.

The P.A.R.C. office is indeed a great ally and aid to our community up here in Humboldt County. When i think of community, I think of P.A.R.C. This special place recognizes that our 'neighbor' is whoever is near us at the time. I know that P.A.R.C. is near to many thankful people's hearts.
On P.A.R.C.'s behalf, I'm writing these things to express the need for funds to keep this haven open. Rent is due, again, and thanks to many, many wonderful individuals, the door is still open. Thank you for your time, thoughts, donations, and love.
My name is Sarah Torres who has received help from P.A.R.C. and who also just enjoys singing and playing with and for the beautiful people who fill this space...

  1. These folks are the only political activists regularly accomplishing anything in this town, the only people that are persistently challenging the one-party rule (developers) that have maintained the local status-quo forever. They've registered more voters with the Eureka Fair Wage Initiative than the county's democratic central committee has in decades. It wasn't until this Initiative qualified for the ballot that local Media decided they'd better cover it!

    Once the people start to vote again in the U.S. we'll be erecting statues and history museums for active visionaries like this.
