2020 Updates on CHAC Activities

In February CHAC was planning the 6th Annual Cesar Chavez Award Breakfast and then life changed.

CHAC cancelled the breakfast and creatively awarded the community awards. The Outstanding Student Award for High School, College, University and the Community Leader Award and the distinguished Vietnam Veterans Award, which will display honorably at the Flagstaff American Legion Post #3.  

CHAC community meetings and CHAC meetings turned virtual. CHAC focus on local governments distribution of COVID-19 info translated to Spanish.  CHAC joined:  NALEO, AZ Town hall, local virtual meetings and webinars to learn the status of the COVID-19 challenges, Census 2020, Voter Registration, Law enforcement. The Tri Council met with the Sheriff and Flagstaff Chief of Police and discuss law enforcement local policies practiced relevant to violence in the country. The BOS asked each council to virtually present their activities.  The councils served on an Interview Panel for the Diversity Director position, currently on hold.

All the community outreach events, parades were cancelled. The Coconino College was innovative and gave families a break with a virtual July 4th Parade. The Coconino County high schools awarded degrees with a drive by graduation parades, it was amazing. The councils participated in the Peace Pole Panel to discuss peace with other community leaders.

CHAC continues to electronically distribute all community info received and many community virtual webinars are being offered for free due to COVID-19. CHAC has become a marketing hub for community agencies serving families in Coconino County.

CHAC received the Hispanic Heritage Proclamation from the BOS and CHAC will virtually celebrate Unity from Sept 15 to Oct 15.  CHAC is participating with the Coconino County Employee Diversity Committee to celebrate in a virtual environment.    

In an effort to move forward CHAC will build on its existing virtual efforts (https://coconinochac.org/ and http://www.amigosnaz.com/) CHAC has refreshed its presence on social media platforms:

In a time when communities are relying on virtual connections, we believe this is one way we can continue to share out our work as council and Coconino county members. 

Thank you! Essential Workers for keeping us safe.

Be safe, wear a mask and keep social distance.   Keep your families safe and each day we are closer to a “New Normal.”
