I found out this weekend that the Resource Center of the Americas has had to close its doors. I worked there until about a year ago, one of the places I felt most at home. And it's been a pillar of my community for much longer than that.
I'm not even sure what to say about it, except that it's a great loss. We did great work on education, activism, and general community building.
It's particularly sad in the face of all the stuff that's heating up about immigration recently (though I guess it's always been a big "issue"
I will really, seriously, miss that place (though I am happy to hear that some sort of volunteer-based version will live on, I'll have to check into that)
