Waltham Community Organizing
REACH’s organizing initiative seeks to engage the community of Waltham through a process of uniting the community to prevent domestic violence. Our work in Waltham is dedicated to building relationships, creating a safer community, and acknowledging that we can all take a small action to make a big difference for domestic violence prevention.
Latest in Waltham Organizing:
Join us for a two part What to Do – What to Say: Training and Discussion that focuses on how to respond to family, friends and neighbors who might be experiencing violence from a partner. If you want to talk more about building community in Waltham or learn more about domestic violence - please join us. We ask that folks attend both sessions to get the most of out of this opportunity. Check out the flyer for more information and please RSVP.
The 4th Annual Waltham Neighborhoods Fall Festival was a huge success!
The event was held on Saturday October 5th from 1-4pm outside on the lawn of the Waltham Public Library. Community members came together for live music from Guy, The Shayne Holland Band, and Up the Octave. We saw and joined in for ZUMBA with LIZ and performance by the Diamond Family Circus. There was free food donated by Hannaford and popcorn from RTN Federal Credit Union. Talented Waltham residents organized activity stations including crafts for kids, bike safety information, a photo booth and face painting. The Waltham Police Department and the Waltham Fire Department visited, along with Patches the Fire Dog.
We had a ball pit encouraging neighbors to sit and have a conversation with a stranger to decrease isolation in the community. There were team games like Donut on a String and a Water Balloon Toss. The day ended with a great raffle from many restaurants and businesses in Waltham who were happy to support a community event.
