To join the meeting, click on the Google Hangouts link above. If you have not used this tool before, you can find information here – Hangouts Meet Training and HelpAt the May meeting, we will brainstorm answers to the question:

What could we all do to provide mutual aid and support for our neighbors during the COVID-19 crisis? How can MtScottArleta Neighborhood Association help?

To quote PDX COVID-19 Mutual Aid Network, in times of crisis we can respond to the needs of our community with collective power and mutual aid. This can be as simple as checking with neighbors at a safe distance for example. If you are unable to join us at the meeting for our brainstorming session, you can submit your own ideas here and we will be sure to discuss them.
