MPJC is happy to announce that our Big Idea for 2018, “Voices of Change”, has been selected for the 2017 Monterey County Gives campaign. MPJC’s Big Idea is to explore the various forms our voices use to exercise civic engagement, be it public comment at council meetings, letter writing, social media, storytelling, music, humor, theater, or through nonviolent resistance using arts, literature, and cultural traditions.
This Community Fundraising campaign is a collaboration between the Monterey County Weekly, the Community Foundation for Monterey County, Packard Foundation and the Neumeier Poma Investment Counsel. Your donation will be increased by a matching grant if received between November 9 and December 31 midnight.
