HumanKIND is an outreach group of the Eastside Hill Neighborhood Association whose mission is to Build Community and Celebrate Diversity.  While we are glad to have a home in the Eastside Hill we reach out to the whole Chippewa Valley and encourage any and all to join in our efforts.  If you would like to be on our mailing list please email us at humanKIND.ec@gmail.com.

Here is what has been happening with humanKIND.

Circles of Change
humanKIND hosted a Wine and Cheese Social and Informational Meeting in August, to promote Circles of Change.  The Eau Claire Music School graciously loaned us there space and we had over 40 people in attendance.   UWEC is hosting dialogue groups called Circles of Change around the topics of race, privilege and creating a more inclusive and equitable community.  Several of our KINDsquad are either part of a Circle or facilitating one of the 10 Circles happening in October and November.  Several Action Plans will be developed and implemented moving from dialogue to action.

Hmong Fiber Arts Event to be held April 2018 (Hmong Heritage Month)
The KINDsquad is working with local businesses and the Hmong Mutual Assistance Association to organize an event that features the wonderful fiber art of the Hmong Community including paj ntaub and story cloths.  There will be an reception including speakers and music at Tangled Up in Hue, and an opportunity for fiber artists to come together and learn how to make one of these lovely fiber pieces.  Look for more details to come!

Welcome Signs
Our Welcome Yard Signs are springing up in yards all over the Chippewa Valley.  We couldn’t be more thrilled.  If you would like a sign in your yard you can get yours at Tangled Up in Hue or Just Local Foods.  We are asking for $15-20 (they cost us about $12) the additional cost goes directly to humanKIND to help fund future events. The Eau Claire Area School District just purchased one of these signs for each of our 22 schools.

Caroling Party
Again we will have a caroling event at the Eau Claire Music School. This will be December 16th.

Potluck and International Folk Dance (2nd Annual)
We will once again be hosting a chance for like-minded folk to meet and mingle with food, music, and dance. This will be held sometime in January.  The exact time and venue are yet to be determined.  Stay tuned.

If you would like to serve as one of the worker bees for humanKIND, our KINDsquad meets monthly,  the second Tuesday of the month, to organize these events.  Just email us at this email address humanKIND.ec@gmail.com.  Our next meeting is scheduled for November 7th, 5:00pm at Racy D’Lene’s Very Coffee Lounge.   You can also follow us on Facebook at humanKIND Eau Claire or The Eastside Hill Neighborhood Facebook page or eastsidehill.com website.
