Families for Equity is looking to grow our community and expand our activities and amenities. We would appreciate your support in helping us reach our goals.
Membership is currently free. This option allows access to our private Facebook group and members only field trips and meetups. To join our community, you can just request to join the group or sign up on our website. Please keep in mind that we do not have an extensive vetting process, but to ensure the safety of our group, we do use our own discretion when approving any requests.
[Coming Soon: Families for Equity will be offering an upgraded membership fee for any members interested in participating in our group buys or other amenities which require a little more legwork on the organizer’s part. These fees will help cover supplies and other related expenses. Announcements will be made in our group.]
Our goal is to plan a fieldtrip every month. A bulk of our members are homeschooling families, so we tend to organize those on weekdays. This Spring, we have plans to introduce some park clean up activities, as well as a few other community centered activities. We will also be bringing back our Wheel Rallies come April. We encourage all members to contribute to helping organize new and exciting activities, if you have an idea you would like to share, contact us to fill us in.
Note: A bulk of our activities are for members only, if you are interested in joining us, you are welcome to tag along with a member, or contact us to learn about any public outings we may have. Public outings are a great way to interact with our group as a newcomer.
As a way to save money or get the greatest value for your cash, Families for Equity will be organizing a few group buys for our members. We are looking for members to step up and participate in the organizing and sorting process.
Our Frontier account is now active. You can contact us to receive an invitation to order through our group. Just provide us with your first and last name, and your email address. Our first order will be placed in April 2017. (guidelines will be posted in the discussion board)
Postpartum Care Packages (now known as 4th Trimester Care)
We are in the midst of developing a program to provide Postpartum Care Packages to families caring for newborns or recovering from childbirth. These packages can also help anyone in need of a little extra nourishment and care. These items are currently handmade by members of our community. We welcome donations to help expand these packages and bring more quality items to our recipients. You can learn more on our blog.
Families for Equity is a community working towards uplifting families of color and other marginalized groups. If you would like to support our mission, please feel free to donate. any amount will help us.
